Houses of Noir : Dark Visions from Thirteen Film Studios

Houses of Noir : Dark Visions from Thirteen Film Studios

By Ronald Schwartz

 

Film noir is a particularly American stylistic phenomenon (although named by French film critics) that permeated nearly every major, minor and independent Hollywood studio production from 1940 through the early 1960s. The author examines the best noir film from each studio and includes each studio's history, a meticulous plot outline and information on the careers of each studio's star roster. He also comments on producers, directors, screenwriters, camera men, composers, art and set directors and presents stills that represent the noir style. Houses of Noir : Dark Visions from Thirteen Studios has a discussion of independent productions and the second best film noirs of major and minor studios.
