TCM's Memorial Weekend Film Noir is Journey into Fear (1942), at 10 a.m. ET on Sunday, May 28.

Joseph Cotten plays an American ballistics expert leaving Turkey for the USA, along with his wife (Ruth Warrick). A Turkish police chief (Orson Welles) places Cotten on a steamship, without him saying goodbye to his wife. Naturally, there are plenty of Nazi spies and other characters on the ship.

Orson Welles and Cotten wrote the screenplay. And Welles supposedly "co-directed" with Norman Foster.

On Sunday, June 4, at 10 am ET on TCM, our friend Eddie Muller presents what he calls "the definitive film noir, Out of the Past (1947).

Robert Mitchum plays a man with a dark past who owns a small-town gas station. A hood from his previous life stumbles into his establishment. From there, Mitchum's character gets in deeper and deeper.
