An even more perfect double-bill with "Ace in the Hole": Sam Fuller's "Shock Corridor," which I watched with my son last night. There's even a similar plot hook: Newsie Peter Breck gets himself committed to a state mental hospital to solve a murder and win the Pulitzer. Of course, he goes nuts -- and learns all about the Sick Soul of America in the process.

Took a look at the top of "Ace" yesterday. Spotless transfer.

That was the first Sam Fuller movie I'd ever seen, off a Criterion laserdisc think it was. Yeah, that's a must-see for fans of the hard and weird.

Thanks for the comment.
