Day 22 of Noirvember: Someone’s in the Kitchen

I don’t know if classic film stars spent as much time in the kitchen as the movie magazines of the day would have you believe, but I quite like to think of my favorite performers whipping up a three-layer chocolate cake or tasty batch of fried chicken.

Today’s Noirvember post takes a peek inside the kitchens of some of our favorite shadowy actors and actresses – and serves up my recommended noir for each!

Veronica Lake: The Glass Key (1942)


Richard Widmark: Night and the City (1950)


Dorothy Malone: The Big Sleep (1946)


Ava Gardner: The Killers (1946) (duh)


Raymond Burr: Desperate (1947)


Jeanne Crain: Leave Her to Heaven (1945)


Victor Mature: Cry of the City (1948)


Rita Hayworth: Gilda (1946)

Bon appetit, y’all! Join me tomorrow for Day 23 of Noirvember!

  1. Very creative post! It’s hard to narrow it down to just one favorite Raymond Burr Film Noir, but you chose a great one!

  2. Wonderful pics!

  3. I’d be afraid to drink anything whipped up by noir Raymond Burr!

  4. Great photo of Victor Mature and the egg in freefall.

  5. Thanks for list of lesser known noirs. I was surprised at how many I haven’t seen, and I am anxious to get to it.
