Dick quoted Robert Mitchum:

"Well, this whole thing about so-called noir lighting," he said, "that was because the budgets were so low we were down to candlepower. . . ."

At University of Maryland, I had a film history professor, Douglas Gomery, who came from an economics background. He found the documentation (memos, budgets, etc) to back up that the the lighting style was due to cost-cutting on the sets Funny how limitations can become defining elements.
