The book I value most in seeking out noir films is still Film Noir: an Encyclopedic Reference to the American Style, edited by Alain Silver. Got my first copy in '78 & with each update the book expands its breadth. Very thorough and useful as a reference book with lots of appendices and essays for deeper reading.
