This encyclopedia of film noir is divided into two parts. Part 1 contains five lengthy essays and include: "Introduction: Readings on Film Noir," "The Hard-Boiled Influence," "Film Noir and the City," "McCarthyism, the House Committee on Un-American Activities, and the Caper Film," and "Film Noir Style." Part Two contains general entries on films, actors and directors. Each entry is generally one to two pages and covers both films and individuals from the classic era as well as the modern era. Recent films like "Memento," "Croupier" and "Blood Simple" are included. Film entries include full synopsis and includes spoilers. Some black and white film stills are included but not all are entries are illustrated. Entries on individuals do not include a photo. There are approximately 130 entries, not comprehensive, but what is contained here is quite excellent.
