There is no way to overestimate the public's on-going fascination with film noir. From the seediest B-pictures to the most opulent excesses of Hollywood's dream factories, film noir has now become the defining visual and thematic style of 40's and 50's American cinema. And this summer, those who have developed a healthy appetite for these wonderfully twisted dramas will be amply rewarded with a thoroughly exciting and thought-provoking sampler of some of the finest examples of this psychologically and emotionally stimulating film style.

This sizzling summer survey--a NINE WEEK immersion into the deepest and darkest end of the film noir pool--will feature NINE amazing films, a combination of hard-core classics and intriguing, seldom-seen curios, all infused with the indelible stylings of some of Hollywood's most brilliantly dynamic directors (Orson Welles, Nicholas Ray, Robert Siodmak, Joseph H. Lewis), most dominant cinematographers (John Alton, Woody Bredell, Stanley Cortez, Burnett Guffey), and most iconic actors and actresses (Humphrey Bogart, Rita Hayworth, Burt Lancaster, Gloria Grahame, Dan Duryea, Joan Bennett). Please note that none of the nine films being shown this term have yet been used in these classes.
