Dark City : The Lost World of Film Noir (Revised and Expanded Edition), Hardback Book

Dark City : The Lost World of Film Noir (Revised and Expanded Edition) Hardback



TCM host 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 an authoritative, highly illustrated volume. This narrative history is packed with stories about the stars and makers of both long-recognized classics like The Maltese Falcon and under-the-radar "lost" greats such as Cry Danger.

The book highlights more than one hundred films, breaking down plots and offering insider accounts behind-the-scenes of their making. ". . . a righteous, rip-snorting riff on the ultimate cinematic genre-film noir.

This book displays a salutary knowledge of the underpinnings of the genre; serves as a fabulous reference book; and most importantly, dishes the real life dirt on the freaks, geeks, commies, nymphos, hopheads, has-beens, red-baiters, and all-purpose fiends who made the genre great."-James Ellroy
