Book by Tuska, Jon

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

Review:

"Tuska's book is an attempt to link the film noir tradition to a wider world of American culture. Thus it provides not only a description of the cinematic antecedents of the films but also a history of its literary origins. The book also defines noir's typical style, themes and concerns, actors, actresses, and directors.... This book is strongest when it discusses the films themselves.... Selected bibliography and filmography are included. Probably most useful at the lower-division undergraduate level." -- Choice
