Out of the Past and Into the Night: The Noir Vision in American Culture

Guest Editor: Doré Ripley, California State University, East Bay

When American movies made their way across the Atlantic after World War II, the French film critics couldn't help but notice their dark and brooding quality, dubbing them noir. Classic noir texts by authors like Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler featured characters that take on the big dark city as alienated, angst-ridden antiheroes.
