Wow, I'm very excited for this box set. I've had Escape in the Fog and Address Unknown in my wishlist for a while, and they are about $15 each. I haven't seen Johnny Allegro but really enjoyed the Warner Archive remastered disc of Tetzlaff's The Window. And I love The Black Book - I have the German KochMedia release (cost me $12), which I think looks nice (compared to the hideous smeary cable copy I watched for years), but $50 for an upgrade of all these to blu-ray, plus these additional new noirs I've not seen, is an easy purchase for me. And seeing that Sony noir font is reassuring, as are Domino's and nitin's notes.

I don't know how successfully it's poison pen plotting works - although there's something to admire in it's ice coldness - but Address Unknown is at the very least visually ravishing, with Menzies visual background coming through clearly. There's a riot in a theater scene in particular that stands out, with fascists practically slashing there way through the movie screen.
