I Cover the Waterfront

I Cover the Waterfront was a 1933 movie taken from a novel about a journalist whose beat was the San Deigo waterfront and the stories of intrigue and smuggling he discovered there.
This photo has the feel of a scene from such an old classic movie.

I love this picture! It definitely captures the mystery of a 1930s suspense film.

OT but there was a documentary on PBS about German-Jewish directors who immigrated to the US. They used many uniquely German movie making and directorial skills that made their films so powerful and successful--and controversial. I believe "Dial M for Murder" was one of them.

It's quite interesting.

(BTW: as a crime reporter in a place called Riverside this picture really appeals to me. Those seagulls seems menacing yet knowing of the secrets of the waterfront.)

the seagulls do have a way of getting around
