I own the first 3 of these books and they are anything (bookwise) you would want on Noir-film and mostly anything else Noir. So I ordered this one and I will enjoy it as much as the first three. They are published by Eddie Muller. Why do I mention this 1st because he is Founder and President of the Film Noir Foundation and they are about preserving and restoring of old Noir Films. One of the greatest film genres ever and there are many films in need of restoration and preserving. My wish is that they all will be out on DVD. You can help them by donating or buying these annuals, info on their web-site. Secondly, if you need an introduction to Film-Noir GET Eddie's book: Dark City The Lost World of Film Noir. Lots of info and a fantastic read. Since this book I have become a fan and bought/watched many DVD's. Noir City Annual #4 WILL be a must-read!!!!!!!!!!!

Better than expected - I will consider getting the other annuals for sure on this basis.
Great companions with the Noir Readers that have come out over recent years.
And a bonus to be supposedly supporting film restoration.

Talk about "More Bang For Your Buck"! All I can say is Thank You Very Much, Mr.Eddie Muller! I haven't been able to put this book down since I received it just 2 days ago. I can't believe the excellent quality of this publication. It contains 328 pages of quality glossy pages which contain a compendium of essays, interviews, profiles, tributes, & reviews carefully selected from the 2011 issues of "Noir City", which is a quarterly magazine which explores all aspects of Film Noir. The book is broken down into various poignant categories that include essays, appreciations, profiles, and other categories such as "Noir Or Not" and "Book vs. Film". For example, the Essays section includes "It Was Never Their Night" which covers Boxing Noir, which was written by Alan K. Rode, "Atomic Noir", which covers Aspects Of Postwar Paranoia, written by Marc Svetov, and "Noir's Sourest Heroes", which explores Guys Who Expect to Die-But Don't, written by Don Malcolm. Highlights of the Appreciations section include "Robert Ryan: The King Of Noir" written by Don Malcolm, "Racism & Rage", Robert Ryan in "Crossfire" and "Odds Against Tomorrow", by Marc Svetov, "Joan Of Noir", The Dark Side Of Joan Bennett by Dan Akira Nishimura, and "The Heaviest Of Them All", which covers The Film Noir Legacy Of Raymond Burr, written by Carl Steward. In the Profiles section, you can revel in "The Ladd Legacy" by Don Malcolm, which is a brief compendium of Alan Ladd's darkest film roles, and also enjoy "The Professional", by Anne M. Hockens, which provides An Appreciation Of Claire Trevor. Keep in mind that these examples are just the tip of the iceberg. The book is lavisly illustrated with production stills, studio photos, film posters, and many rare photos not found anywhere else.Read more ›

No completist can be without this new issue of Noir City! It is the biggest and best Noir City Annual yet. The issue is lavishly illustrated with production and publicity stills, studio photographs, theater posters and original artwork.

If you have had the opportunity to see the quarterly Noir City issues online, do not be dissuaded from seeking out the paperback edition. It has been revised and updated. The layout of the print edition usually is an improvement upon the high quality e-versions.

Of course, I am biased since I purchased and read the first three annuals.
