In Greek tragedy, they fall from great heights. In noir, they fall from the curb.

One Feedback on "Noir"


Film as noir, a sleeper:

“The Stranger”, 1946- Welles, Loretta Young, Robinson.

A shade of “Double Indemnity” and hints of the upcoming “The Third Man” arise in Welles’ first noir.

For the addicted, an uncredited Brother Theodore appears briefly.

When (whenever) Welles acts he’s not. It’s unsettling who he is.
