Film Noir Series – the films

It took quite an effort to sort through all of the candidates but I’m thankful that I could lean on Elaine and Henry to help me sort out the best for the series.  Many of you would like to revisit the very popular films of the genre: The Killers, Maltese Falcon, Double Indemnity, etc but I thought it would be more interesting to see films just as good but not so well known.  I wanted to run the series from the earliest to the end of the era and include most of the names who made the genre so popular.
