Happy Eighth Birthday, Film Noir Photos!

Viewers of this blog come for many different reasons.  

Some are interested in the pre-code period.

Claudette Colbert in The Sign of the Cross {1932)

Some are here to assuage their smoking fetish,

Anne Francis

or to view seductive females atop dead carnivores.

Veronica Lake

Some are here for the wonderful noir imagery,

Gloria Grahame and Glenn Ford in Human Desire (1954)

or perhaps for those sexy European hairy armpits,

Giulietta Masina

or simply for that old fashioned feminine pulchritude.

Sophia Loren

Whatever your reason, thanks for your kind attention...

...and Liz still thinks Film Noir Photos is Number One!
