9780786426287: Film Noir: A Comprehensive, Illustrated Reference to Movies, Terms and Persons

Film noir is a uniquely American genre that has stylistic links to the German expressionist cinema of the 1920s and thematic links to the hard-boiled crime fiction that emerged in the 1930s. Generally the milieu is urban and middle class, and the overall feel is one of repression and fatalism. Whether shot in black and white or color, the style reinforces the overall feel. Films, directors, actors, producers, screenwriters, art directors, themes, plot devices and many other elements are contained in this encyclopedic reference work. Each movie entry includes full filmographic data (studio, running time, production and cast credits, and plot synopsis) along with an analysis of its place in the genre. Biographical entries focus on the person’s role in noir and provide a complete filmography of their film noir work. Terms are placed in the context of the genre and relevant examples from films are given.

About the Author :

Film historian Michael L. Stephens lives in Fort Worth, Texas. He is also the author of Art Directors in Cinema (1998) and Gangster Films (1996).

From Library Journal :

The author begins this book with an excellent introduction to film noir, that enduringly popular genre of films with fatalistic, bleak themes. Although they became most famous during the 1940s and 1950s-when such examplars as Double Indemnity and The Big Heat were released-Stephens traces their genesis to the Thirties. The encyclopedic entries include film titles, actors, screenwriters, directors, studios, cinematographers, composers, themes (e.g., amnesia), and more. The film entries are especially good, with complete credits supplemented by lengthy plot descriptions and personal notes addressing casting or why the film was successful. In Film Noir, films that may be too obscure for other film encyclopedias have a great book dedicated to their genre. Highly recommended for public libraries and any library with a film collection.
