Robert Mitchum - NFT season

Robert Mitchum - NFT season

His noir hunk persona encounters Jane Russell in a couple of ripple pulp adventures, 'His Kind of Woman' and 'Macao', while 'Where Danger Lives' is a haunting display of hamstrung manhood at bay.

He is vicious in the low-budget gangster drama 'The Racket', the noir western 'Blood on the Moon', and the bleak oater 'Man with the Gun', but the blend of authority and devil-may-care is freshened every time.

Legend had it that Mitchum often looked like he was sleepwalking through a role and then pull out the most deeply committed of extraordinary moments. There are many tall tales about Robert Mitchum, most of them spread by himself, but the story of his career is perhaps the most outlandish of them all.

Introducing… Elvis Costello: The Ultimate Music Guide


In June 1977, Allan Jones of the Melody Maker took a familiar route to the offices of Stiff Records in West London. His appointment, that day, was with a notably irascible young singer-songwriter from Hounslow. In the course of a frequently startling interview, the man who had chosen to call...
