"George Hodel, I think, is fit company for some of noir's most civilized villains--like Waldo Lydecker in "Laura", Harry Lime in "The Third Man" or ven Noah Cross in "Chinatown," the man who (thanks to the screenwriter, Robert Towne) warned us, "Most people never have to face the fact that at the right time and right place, they're capable of anything." And what had Cross done? Raped his daughter and his city, and lived into old age."
