Somewhere in the Night

Somewhere in the Night: Film Noir and the American City by Nicholas Christopher

More a lyric discussion than serious analysis, with personal opinion freely mixed -- discussion of all sorts of elements of film noir from the lighting to the use of money, to the labyrinthine cities. Femmes fatale, millionaires, boxers, vets, and other characters. Crime, generally organized. The use of color when it came in.
