  1. “Fallen Sparrow” : I saw this as vhs rental fr video store.
    Then I moved to dvd but many pix did not – and store closed.
    It’s based on a ‘thriller’ by fine writer Dorothy B Hughes who
    also wrote “In A Lonely Place,” which differs greatly fr the movie.
    (Patricia Morison had small film career but was costar of orig cast
    “Kiss Me, Kate,” Bwy). Another Hughes novel,”Ride the Pink
    Horse,” was filmed…I’ve never seen. Not sure it’s available.

    1. The Sparrow is actually playing with In a Lonely Place as a Hughes double feature. I know you’re a big fan of Hughes’s novel, which is one I read this last semester and was really impressed as well (another review I need to get around to!). Ride the Pink Horse has a really high reputation with noir aficionados, and I’ve nearly crossed paths with it several times but haven’t seen it yet, alas. I don’t think it’s available on any home video formats, but if I ever run across it I’ll let you know!

      1. Amazon has a dvd for $22, but a reviewer says the quality
        is bad and not worth the money. Adding : it’s a nifty film.
