"Route 66"
photography by Andreas Feininger
Life Magazine

A good friend just wrote after spending a day in Oklahoma on Route 66 ~
the possibility of having these same clouds from this grand photograph above.
This photograph always takes me back to the opening sequence of the outstanding film noir
 Out of the Past (1947)
directed by Jacques Tourneur
based on Daniel Mainwaring's novel Build My Gallows High
(revisions by James M. Cain) 
w/ Robert Mitchum, Kirk Douglas, and Jane Greer
up there in Bridgeport, California
