Film Noir

Yes, I love film noir...some references:

The Film Noir Foundation is dedicated to the preservation of noir films. The FNF publishes the Noir City e-magazine and hosts Noir City festivals in several US cities every year. FNF founder Eddie Muller now hosts "Noir Alley" on Turner Classic Movies and is a regular presenter at the network's annual classic film festival in Hollywood.

The Dark Pages is a bi-monthly newsletter all about noir and edited by film noir aficionado Karen Burroughs-Hannsberry. Each year's final edition is a "Giant Issue" packed with articles that examine a single aspect - be it a film, actor, director or theme - of film noir. The newsletter is available by subscription. 

The Dark Pages can be found on Facebook and Twitter.
