Out of the Past ink studies (unfinished)
Out of the Past (originally released in the United Kingdom as Build My Gallows High) is a 1947 film noir directed by Jacques Tourneur and starring Robert Mitchum, Jane Greer and Kirk Douglas. The film was adapted by Daniel Mainwaring (using the pseudonym Geoffrey Homes), with uncredited revisions by Frank Fenton and James M. Cain, from his novel Build My Gallows High (also written as Homes).
Film historians consider the film a superb example of film noir due to its convoluted, dark storyline, dark cinematography and classic femme fatale. The film’s cinematographer Nicholas Musuraca also shot Tourneur’s Cat People. In 1991, Out of the Past was added to the United States National Film Registry as being deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”

"Sometimes, I think I ought to go back and do at least one thing really well. But again, indolence will probably cause me to hesitate about finding a place to start. Part of that indolence perhaps is due to shyness because I’m a natural hermit. I’ve been in constant motion of escape all my life. I never really found the right corner to hide in." 
-Robert Mitchum

"I never saw her int the daytime.  We seemed to live by night.  What was left of the day went away like a pack of cigarettes you smoked.  I didn’t know where she lived.  I didn’t follow her.  All I ever had to go on was a place and a time to see her again.  I don’t know what we were waiting for. Maybe we thought the world would end."
