Everything You Can Ask for in a Film Noir Classic! Posted by: from: Los Angeles on This idea of aesthetic torture is taken to the extreme in Joseph H. Lewis’ film noir classic The Big Combo (1955). In one particular scene, crime boss Mr. Brown utilizes a jazz record and a hearing aid, among other things, as instruments of terror. Mr. Brown attaches the hearing aid to his overly obsessive pursuer, Police Lt. Leonard Diamonds' ear, cranks the volume of the record, and stuns the Lt.'s eardrum until he passes out. Pulsating lights are also a structuring motif of death throughout the entire film. Much tribute is paid to this film, with direct references its characters, by Reservoir Dogs (1992), a film by a certain somebody named Quentin Tarantino.

A Classic! Posted by: from: Casper, WY on One of the great noir films and it looks amazing on Blu-ray! While this film can be seen for free on various sites, nothing compares this high definition release. Do yourself a favor and add The Big Combo to your collection.
