Summary
Film noir is a term used to describe the dark, brooding, doom-laden films that emerged from Hollywood after World War II, all of them registering a more cruel, disoriented, heartless vision of America than had ever appeared before. This book is the most thorough and entertaining study of the themes, visual motifs, character types, actors, directors, and films in this genre ever published.
