A must have

Jasun,27 ottobre 2021
This was a gift I bought someone else because of their interest in “old crime movies.” I soon got a copy for myself not just to help introduce me to new movies but also to learn the rather fascinating history of Noir movies.

Compact, comprehensive and informative book

Stephen,27 ottobre 2021
There is so much packed into this relatively compact book. It is beautifully printed offering so much informative text on each of the chosen films featured on this classic genre of movie and its stars, and also some gorgeous visuals in the form of stills, star profiles and poster artwork. A valuable addition to my book collection, not only as an avid cinema goer and film fan, but also as a movie poster collector.

Great Book
