Shadows and smoke

Classic noir flicks of the 1940s-50s, illustrated and examined

Film Noir

New edition, only $ 14.99
Original edition $ 19.99
Beginning with a general overview of film noir and covering its most important themes chapter by chapter (lovers plan murder, corrupt police, doomed love, psychological noir, etc.), this copiously illustrated handbook provides instant and in-depth access to the film noir genre for amateurs and aficionados alike. Among the films covered are these "top ten": Double Indemnity, Kiss Me Deadly, Gun Crazy, Criss Cross, Detour, In A Lonely Place, T-Men, Out of the Past, The Reckless Moment, and Touch of Evil.
  • "For an absorbing and authoritative retrospective of the genre, look no further than Film Noir by Silver and Ursini, a handsome, coffee-table book that combines insightful narrative with beautifully rendered photos of noir's most celebrated stars and filmmakers."
