Forgotten Cinema - Devil in a Blue Dress
Updated: Apr 5
The Mikes get duped by femme fatales and crooked politicians in 1940s Los Angeles in this episode of Forgotten Cinema. Mike Field and Mike Butler tackle the 1995 Denzel Washington film, Devil in a Blue Dress, based on the Easy Rawlins novels by Walter Mosley. The Mike's discuss crime noir tropes, Don Cheadle's character, 1940's Los Angeles, and how Easy Rawlins is a unique take on the oft done 1940's private eye. So grab your popcorn and soda, please notice the exits at the front and rear of the auditorium, and settle down for Forgotten Cinema.
