Now Screening Online: 'My Favorite Brunette'
Have you ever turned down the lights on a warm afternoon and let that Los Angeles sunshine stream through some half-closed Venetian blinds? Have you ever kicked up your legs on your desk and waiting for some talk drink of water to come walking through your office door?
No? Well, you should. It's really fun.
In this week's Classic Cool Theater film, "My Favorite Brunette," Bob Hope plays precisely this kind of film noir nut who's always dreamed of going on his own detective adventure. It's a loving parody of film noir tropes released back in 1947, when such films were doing big business.
