It Gets Deep (no lake pun intended)

Put the recent DVD release of Lady in the Lake in the PC here and watched the audio commentary version by Alain Silver and James Ursini. I think this was the first full movie where I listed to the entire commentary. It gets deep.

Both fellas go through a lot of factoids about the actors as well as film noir. About 45 minutes into the commentary, I was burnt out. Me, the fact nerd. I started to balance my checkbook & listen in the background, which is what I'd recommend.

One piece of info that struck me as interesting is the scene in Adrienne Fromsett's bedroom with Philip Marlowe, right after his car accident. He's laying in her bed recovering, and she's sitting on the edge of it. The scene made it past the censors - they were both in one bed at the same time (ha!).
