All's Quiet Chinatown

All's Quiet Chinatown, originally uploaded by deanv41.

As special as the light of day is in this city, by night it is a noir temptress. I have lately been living in Dashiell Hammett's City, the core of it, in alleys, at night, inclement weather, wind and fog. I live a half block from the Chinatown Public Library, one of the best, and find a wonderful dvd collection for no fee. So i have turned my cinematic mind to Sam Spade and The Maltese Falcon, and San Francisco in the first half of the twentieth century.
