with Michael Kovner
Enjoy a history of the world of Film Noir from The Maltese Falcon in 1941 to Psycho in 1960. Often written by mystery writers like Raymond Chandler, these melodramas featured stylized black and white cinematography. Not only are the films filled with shadows, but so are the characters. Beautiful young women are not what they seem, and the leading men are handsome but not conventional matinee idols.
