esotouric Fog. Flickering neon. A detective, shabby but noble. Corrupt politicians. A woman with a past. Greed without conscience. Love that destroys.

Climb aboard the Esotouric bus for an afternoon's adventuring in the lost noir Los Angeles of James M. Cain, Raymond Chandler and their creative pals Joan Crawford, Lana Turner and Billy Wilder. This tour isn't offered often, so save the date!

The Birth of Noir - March 19, 12-4pm
Tickets are $58.
http://esotouric.com/cain-3-19-16/

Tour schedule: Raymond Chandler’s L.A. (2/13) - Weird West Adams (2/20) - Boyle Heights / Monterey Park (2/27) - Wild Wild Westside (3/13) - The Birth of Noir: James M. Cain’s Southern California Nightmare (3/19) - Hotel Horrors & Main Street Vice (3/26) - Hollywood!

naelkins Just in time for Valentine's Day! The only company a lonely woman needs. All that Heaven Allows is one of my all time favorite movies. The cinematography is to die for, the color, the set, the script. So good. #douglassirk #allthatheavenallows #classic #movie #valentinesday #technicolor #janewyman #rockhudson #color #winter 2d

gay_butnothappy Phenomenal Woman appreciation post: IDA LUPINO
Ida Lupino was not an Old Hollywood name I grew up with, like #LanaTurner or #KatharineHepburn and it's puzzling she's yet to be claimed as an early #feminist pioneer.
The self-proclaimed "poor man's #BetteDavis , Lupino was born during a German Zeppelin bombing in 1918. She was the first woman to direct a noir film, and the first woman to direct herself in a film, eschewing the fluff offered to her as actress for RKO, instead choosing to direct films for the studio about gritty, complicated, often unlikeable women.
Lupino wrote and directed indie movies about incest, unwed mothers, murderesses, escaped convicts, and most controversially, in the 1950 film "Outrage," rape. "Outrage" was only the second film dealing with rape to (barely) pass the censor board, and most presciently featured the tag line "Is Any Woman Safe?"
Its amazing to find these women who seem to have been buried by history, overshadowed by an image of women in the 1940s 1950s as docile, doting, slaves to domesticity.
In an interview with @hollywoodreporter in 1995, Lupino recalled "'My father once said to me, 'You're born to be bad,' she recalled. 'And it was true. I made eight films in England before I came to America, and I played a tramp or a slut in all of them." #IdaLupino #Herstory #HollywoodHerstory #OldHollywood #womandirector
