RARA-AVIS: Re: RARA-AVIS Digest V5 #135

My thanks to Allan Guthrie for letting us know about *Noir Originals Zine.*

I have have read only one article, "The Hardboiled Thirties," by Michael Robison, but it is a good one.

Miker, as he is known on Rara-Avis and other lists, gives a thumbnail of not just hardboiled but noir of that period. At the same time he, consciously or unconsciously, makes the argument: all noir is hardboiled, but all hardboiled is not noir.

It's obvious, but it never hit me until I read this article. Maybe others have made the same argument, but I just missed it--or I failed to make the observation. A big "duh" on my part.

You can click to the article without leaving Rara-Avis at:


When you're there, you can click to the rest of the zine and still get back to Rara-Avis.

Thanks, Al.

Thanks, Miker.

Now to take the look at the rest of the site.

PS: No BSP here, I have nothing in the zine.
