I'd have to think about some appropriate Noirs.

Re: Minus 30 outside. Any cold weather noir?

I was kinda wondering about that myself...

How about the 1950s film On Dangerous Ground?

I might get going on Christmas films this weekend.

Like them all but FARGO. That one never worked for me.

Re: Fargo

About 10 years ago, I tried to watch a bunch of the 90s Coen Bros thrillers and I really couldn't finish any of them, including Fargo.

Calgary, Alberta, Canada. And it looks like at least a two week spell of similar weather coming our way.

Re: western Canada

Most of western Canada is like that.

I heard that Manitoba, along with this cold, also got hit with a lot of snow. Here in Edmonton it's quite dry. I wouldn't mind a bit more snow, but first I hope it warms up! Yikes!

Two great ones that are both cold weather and Christmasy: Blast of Silence (1961) and Le monte-charge (1962).

Re: Minus 30 outside. Any cold weather noir?

I hope that things heat up soon in your area Gordon,and if you get snowed in,it would be a good time watch some Old Dark House mysteries.

Re: Minus 30 outside. Any cold weather noir?

Most of Alberta (my province, too) is under an extreme cold warning. A windchill of minus 40 (Celsius) is expected overnight and into tomorrow. Yup, the Old Dark House mysteries are the way to go these days!

Minus 40 on both the Celsius (°C)and Fahrenheit (°F)scale turn out the same. Minus 30 C is about minus 22 on the F side incase anyone was wondering. Personally I was in minus 57-59 F back as a kid in Whitehorse, Yukon. And we still went to school!

Re: Minus 30 outside. Any cold weather noir?

Of course (about minus 40).

That's COLD weather in Yukon! I don't think we've ever had it that cold here in Edmonton, where I've lived all my life. We went to school on cold days. It's only in the States where they have their snow days, where they cancel classes if they get an inch of snow. If we did that each time it snowed, the kids would have to attend school all summer!
