RARA-AVIS: Dark City: the Lost World of Film Noir

Sat, 17 Jan 1998 06:43:38 -0800 >DARK CITY: THE LOST WORLD OF FILM NOIR was described thus: "This ultimate
>companion to gritty black-and-white postwar classics like THE BIG HEAT and
>THE BAD AND THE BEAUTIFUL reveals that the dark stars led desperate,
>nefarious lives both on-screen and off."
Although I did not think the lives of the stars was the overall point of
the work (I would just buy it to look at the stills from the pictures),
this book has every possible detail about every film crammed between great
stills from the pictures. I reviewed this for MYSTERY NEWS and only saw a
review copy where the stills were photocopied, but the real book is going
to be great, I believe.
