***************************************************** When I keyed my last comment I was just trying to think of examples of subtle noir. It seems to me noir has to verge on melodrama to BE noir. What examples of subtle noir can you think of?

Even Fitzgerald's THE BEAUTIFUL AND DAMNED, which IS noir by most of our definitions, can hardly be called spare or subtle.
