Cinema Dave  Swashbuckling ournalist and

LENT DAY 39 Bruce Willis and his roots in Film Noir

This evening I finally got to see the "Moonlighting" episode titled,
"The Dream Sequence Always Rings Twice."
Filmed in Black and White and featuring Cybill Sheperd belting out "Blue Moon"
and "I Told You I Love You, Now Get Out!", this episode was introduced by Orson Welles.
Welles died a few days after the episode aired on the ABC network.

The DVD also features a commentary by Bruce Willis on the episode, "My Fair David."
Irwin Keyes portrays a hooligan in this episode.
Willis comments on the film noir aspects of that particular episode.
It is easy to remember that "Moonlighting" thrived on being a Preston Sturges screwball comedy,
these two episodes also lay the seeds to Bruce Willis involvement in future noir epics like
"Sin City."
