Day 15 of Noirvember: Quote of the Day

Today’s Noirvember post shines the light on one of film noir’s most highly acclaimed features, Out of the Past (1947). A first-rate picture starring Robert Mitchum, Jane Greer, and Kirk Douglas, Out of the Past is fairly brimming with memorable dialogue and quotable lines. Here’s an example:


I never saw her in the daytime. We seemed to live by night. What was left of the day went away like a pack of cigarettes you smoked. I didn’t know where she lived. I never followed her. All I ever had to go on was a place and time to see her again. I don’t know what we were waiting for. Maybe we thought the world would end. — Jeff Bailey (Robert Mitchum)

Join me tomorrow for Day 16 of Noirvember!
