I went and had dinner at a small diner on the edge of Pacific Palisades and then went to a drive-in movie in Santa Monica to kill some time before the meeting. A movie called Impact was showing, about a wealthy industrialist who was presumed dead after an accident orchestrated by his wife and her lover. But he lived and secretly began plotting his revenge. Apart from gender reversals it wasn't that far removed from my current case.

The show wrapped up at about 9 pm so I scooted on back to Pacific Palisades to wait for the meeting...

    I was looking for a movie from 1949 and found that one. It seemed appropriate.

    Nice bit of research and referencing, Christopher. A smile-generating contextual reference!

    I don't think I've ever seen it but I searched something like "Noir Movies 1949" and that was one of the first ones that popped up. Very fortuitous.
