Interlude: R.I.P. Ann Savage

I just popped in over at Nathan Cain's Independent Crime and read some sad news.

Ann Savage, one of the quintessential femme fatales of film noir, passed away over the Christmas holiday.

I've been trying to find just the right picture of Ann to place on the site since I started and everytime it looks like I've found one, something or other winds up happening with that picture so that it doesn't work out.

I would second Nathan's lament that you check out Detour, Ann's most famous noir flick, if you've never seen it before.

Ann Savage will be sorely missed.

Update: The picture at the header is Ann Savage in Detour. Strangely, I didn't have any problems finding this one and being able to post it.

She was a great actress and that movie was one of my favorites. Talent like hers was and is rare.
