First, a comment about last week’s Noir of the Week, Dead Reckoning. Early on, while riding a train to Washington D.C., Bogey tells his buddy (Prince): “You’re going to get the Congressional, the Big One, from the Big Guy. Maybe he’ll let you sit on his piano.”

This was an inside joke, referring to this: Bogey's wife, Lauren Bacall, sitting on a piano being played by then-Vice President Harry Truman.

Eddie Muller didn't mention this, but managed to bring up the blacklist in his outro remarks (see video at bottom of page).
