Dark City : The Lost World of Film Noir



By Eddie Muller


"If you want an autographed copy of Dark City, with an exclusive graphic stamp, there is only one place to get it—the Larry Edmunds Bookshop in Hollywood. Please support this one-of-a-kind bookstore, one of the essential remaining landmarks in Hollywood." — Eddie Muller

In recent years, one of the most requested contemporary film books has been Dark City: The Lost World of Film Noir by Eddie Muller, first published in 1998. The book had slipped into out-of-print status, but with its author now a popular fixture on TCM's Noir Alley more and more people are craving this landmark tome. Some are willing to pay top dollar for used copies, while others have waited and hoped for a new edition.
Well, the wait will soon be over! On July 20th, Dark City comes back in print—in a newly revised and expanded hardcover edition, with additional material throughout, three new chapters, and dozens of new and restored images. That news alone is exciting, but here at the Larry Edmunds Bookshop we are especially thrilled that Eddie has agreed to inscribe your copy! Not only will it be signed, if you pre-order Dark City from Larry Edmunds Bookshop, Eddie will personally stamp an exclusively designed noir image with your copy, a bonus unavailable from any other source!
Order your copy at and get Dark City signed by the "Czar of Noir" himself! With an exclusive stamp!
Your order supports an independent bookstore that has been at it here in Hollywood since 1938! Order yours today at!


This revised and expanded edition of Eddie Muller's Dark City is a film noir lover's bible, taking readers on a tour of the urban landscape of the grim and gritty genre in a definitive, highly illustrated volume.


Dark City expands with new chapters and a fresh collection of restored photos that illustrate the mythic landscape of the imagination. It's a place where the men and women who created film noir often find themselves dangling from the same sinister heights as the silver-screen avatars to whom they gave life. Eddie Muller, host of Turner Classic Movies' Noir Alley, takes readers on a spellbinding trip through treacherous terrain: Hollywood in the post-World War II years, where art, politics, scandal, style -- and brilliant craftsmanship -- produced a new approach to moviemaking, and a new type of cultural mythology.
