My latest guest post over at B&S About Movies is up.  I write about This Gun for Hire (1942), an early noir mystery starring Veronica Lake, Robert Preston, and newcomer Alan Ladd, who completely runs away with the picture as a ruthless hitman with a soft spot for cats (and Veronica Lake, of course)

As always, if you’re inclined to leave a comment, please do so over at B&S. Enjoy!
