city." Although I can think of exceptions (for instance, Daniel Woodrell and Joe Lansdale), the city sees to me to be an integral part in my idea of noir<<

How about Cain? Or did they just seem rural because of the limited number of characters?

>>also, wasn't "M" an early talkie (albeit
with subtitles in the US)?<<

What I remember most is that I had to read subtitles. I hate subtitles almost as much as I hate semicolons.
