Movies I Watched in November

I guess Alfred from Miracle on 34th Street still has a complex that 
compels him to play Santa Claus. Seen here with Thelma Ritter (who 
was also in Miracle on 34th Street!) in The Proud and Profane (1958).

It was a good Noirvember. I've never watched this many noirs in one month! After I watched Abandoned on Noir Alley I looked up more Dennis O'Keefe movies on Tubi. Cover Up is a good noir to transition from Noirvember to Christmas :) I also watched watched several Glenn Ford noirs. How many noirs did you watch?

Least Favorite Film: I did not like The Strange Love of Martha Ivers. I had started watching it once and stopped it when Judith Anderson killed the cat. My brother told me it was good so I gave it another shot. I just didn't like it.

Favorite Movie: If you like spoofs than The Cheap Detective is a must watch. It spoofs The Maltese Falcon and Casablanca, with a little bit of To Have and Have Not. It was so funny. 

Can you tell who this is a sketch of? From The Proud and Profane (1956).
