How Every Film Noir Ends

After I posted about Film Noir last week, Miss Cellania posted this hilarious little video on her blog. The comedian and star is the brilliant Alasdair Beckett-King. He has absolutely captured the essence of every Film Noir movie ever made, LOL! 


My favourite part is the deathless line: "You can't learn to have knees, Doris. You either got 'em or you ain't." So, SO true!

They even did the gauze over the camera lens for Doris's closeup!!!

Get out of here before I fall in love with you! Perfect. The music, the B&W. Everything!

XOXO

Frank said...

Oh Kay. I remain clueless when it comes to Film Noir, Film Blanc, Film Rouge...

Laura J said...

Totally brilliant!

Made my day! Reminds me of Firesign Theater a bit...

"We were playing a friendly game of Toss the Pickle when..."

Marie Smith said...

The Blog Fodder said...

That was wonderful. So funny and caught every line just perfect. Bogie would be proud.

Oh - Perfect! Every noir film I've ever seen in a short clip!

Travel said...

You have to watch to the very end, made me laugh

Marcia LaRue said...

Hilarious!

Brian Joseph said...

Hilarious! Especially for those who have seen a lot of these films.

This couldn't be more perfect.

I can't remember what film; I think it was Victor Mature, but a line a I'll never forget: “That’s life. Whichever way you turn, fate sticks out a foot to trip you.”

Martha said...

Love this, so funny!

Rain said...

That was BRILLIANT...lol...so damn true. I love it! By the way I'm so happy to hear you were a big SCTV fan too. I think Dr. Tongue was my favourite character of all.

Definitely got the dame's razor thin eyebrows right, but take half a point off for the smokeless cigarette. Noir's like bbq, see, if it ain't got smoke, it ain't noir.

Lady M said...

The end just made me chuckle - you got cylinders!

e said...

That was hilarious and absolutely spot on!

DVArtist said...

Ohh this is excellent. Thanks for sharing it.

Mike said...

I can't believe I used to watch those.

Rommy said...

I was not expecting that ending! Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!

Suz said...

That WAS HILARIOUS!! I'm so thankful I have knees.

Tundra Bunny said...

Brewella's absolutely right about the cigarette smoke! There wasn't even any steam from manhole covers or sidewalk vents... there were also no beards in Film Noir, just 2 or 3 day stubble! That would have been a lot more funny on the dame. It gets a C+ from this grumpy reviewer today, LOL!

Delightful! This is one comedian I’m going to have to look up. I’ve been following the work of Ryan George on YouTube - he does all those “Pitch Meetings” in which he, too, plays both roles, a screenwriter and his boss, as the screenwriter describes his latest story idea for a familiar film or TV series. They never quite make sense and when the boss questions why this or that absurdity, he says, “I don’t know!” Or “Get off my back about that!” He gets it absolutely right, too!

Bea said...

What a set pins on that gal!
Har-har. :D

'Get outta here before I fall in love with you!'

Janie Junebug said...

That's great.

Love,

Doris just needs a different movie. Tell her to try Freaks (1932)

Too late :) I already love Doris, and all the other Dorisses and Kevins and Karens in this world :)

This N That said...

Elsie Amata said...

I was waiting for the "look over her shoulder" as she walked away, but the shot of her "legs" was waaayy better! :)

Fundy Blue said...

Haha! Great fun, Debra. My copy of "The Ice Harvest" by Scott Phillips arrived this afternoon. I'm reading it as soon as I finish my current book. Then I'll look for the film. Have a great weekend!
