5.0 out of 5 stars DARK NIGHTS. COOL FILMS. NOIR AT ITS BEST
A dark night. A rain-drenched sidewalk. A streetlight flickering on the pavement. Murky shadows, creepy shapes. A gunshot. A beautiful woman chased down the street by a man whose body is encased in a trenchcoat and whose face is obscured by a fedora. Relax. Loosen up. Enjoy. You haven't witnessed a crime, but are witness to the America's newest nostalgia craze: Film...

3.0 out of 5 stars STUNNING BOX SET OF VINTAGE FILM NOIR!
The mid to late 1940s produced a string of classic film noir motion pictures that effectively paved the road to more cynicism and realism in the movies.

Four of the five titles here can legitimately lay claim to being essentials in the film noir canon, and the fifth, The Set-Up, is a terrific boxing picture with a strong noir atmosphere. If you're a fan of noir--or have no idea what it's all about--this collection is a treat.
