Would like you to read my book “TV Noir:the 20th Century”, the first book to chronologically analyze film noir techniques applied to tv series drama. On Amazon Books, it was recently reviewed on Bookgasm.com, TVConfidential.net-archived program#74 and in “The Popular Culture Review”/winter 2011 issue. Can send complimentary copy for perusal or review. Also check worldcat.org and Books.google.com. Thanks for your interest.

A wonderful site, Tony. I’ve been using your ‘Essential Noirs’ list as a reference point in collecting these titles in their various DVD guises, and it’s been exceptionally useful.
I’m having a great time reading through your posts and articles. Terrific stuff!
August 2, 2011 at 8:11 am
Thanks David. Feedback like yours is very much appreciated!
August 11, 2011 at 1:10 pm
Love your site.
I just wrote and self-published through Createspace a monograph on five important low-budget/noir directors: Edgar Ulmer, Ida Lupino, Gerd Oswald, Hugo Haas, and Reginald LeBorg. It is available through Amazon.
I have written with Alain Silver extensively on film noir, including the Film Noir Reader series, LA Noir, and numerous DVD commentaries.
August 11, 2011 at 1:11 pm
Ooops. Forgot to say the name of the book: Directors on the edge: Outliers in Hollywood.
August 11, 2011 at 2:08 pm
It is a real pleasure to have your comment James. All serious film noir fans are aware of your major contribution to the study of the cycle. I will head over to Amazon soonest to get the lowdown. Expect a post on the book shortly. Wishing you success with your new publication. Tony
August 12, 2011 at 5:56 am
It’s thrilling to see James Ursini here at FILMSNOIR.NET. Your seminal volume with Alain Silver is one of my most cherished holdings. I will check out your newest release on amazon as well!
August 22, 2011 at 9:59 pm

Great news Fabrice! Congratulations and I wish you the best for the competition.

Hi Tony, your website is incredibly informative and very nicely laid out. If you are interested we are doing a film noir rock opera, feel free to check it out. Thank you for providing such a great site!
September 19, 2011 at 8:26 am
Thanks Joseph. I will indeed check out your site. PS: I have added a link to ‘Rock a Bye Dead Man’.
September 20, 2011 at 1:34 pm
Thanks Tony! I really appreciate it. Wishing you all the best.

Thought you and your readers might enjoy my latest vid, with footage taken from public domain properties like “International Crime” and “Driven to Kill,” along with video taken over the last month here in New Orleans (see if you can tell which).
At any rate, I hope you enjoy it even half as much as I like your site.
February 3, 2012 at 1:42 pm
Great Louie! I have put up a special post featuring your video. Tony
February 3, 2012 at 2:56 pm
thanks. I did like finding the noirish bits in my hometown. No surprise the Coens found so much to use in “Millers Crossing.”
February 18, 2012 at 10:54 am
Great site by a kindred spirit, love it. I have always been attracted to the gritty, dark underbelly of society, the other side of the tracks if you will, and I started to express that attraction in drawings and paintings and have since progressed to video so here I share some pieces I’ve helped to create with you. Enjoy.
First up is “Tony Mars A Case of Murphy’s Law” most of the images are from Hudson, NY which was the location for the bank job in one of the last Film Noirs “Odds Against Tomorrow”, and more recently for Paul Newman’s “Nobody’s Fool”. Music is “Harlem Nocturn” & the TCM late night bumper.
Tony Mars A Case of Murphy’s Law
Next is a homage to Femme Fatale’s “Not Tonight” music is from opening credits to Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and the TCM late night bumper. Opening title sequence is an homage to Kiss Me Deadly
February 18, 2012 at 4:08 pm
Nice work Joe! I have posted on “Tony Mars A Case of Murphy’s Law”. Tony
April 4, 2012 at 12:50 pm
Here is another homage to Film Noir and “crime jazz” called “T.N.T.” enjoy.

My name is Dorian Dardar. My love of Cinema forced me to Produce an Ultra-Low Budget FIlm called “Just Another Noir”, available now on Amazon.com. I would like it very much if you could help me reach the noir loving audience by reviewing, or listing my film on your site.
April 26, 2012 at 3:15 pm
Hi Tony! I love the blog and was hoping that you’d be interested in checking out a short neo noir I made that applies the elements of classic noir to stereotypical toy collectors. It’s called “The Widow’s Toys.” It’s far from perfect and I’m well aware of the flaws and everything, but still, It would mean a whole lot to me if you’d check it out. I love noir and I just want to give something new to the genre. Thanks! Keep up the great work here.
The movie can be found here:
April 26, 2012 at 9:29 pm
Hey Bobby. Looks like you had fun making it. The characters are too nice ;)
May 15, 2012 at 2:44 pm
I’m a big noir fan, and recently completed a short neo-noir for a website that I co-founded, finite-films.com. We make movies based on “constraints” our fans submit (e.g. “one scene must take place in the rain”), and for this one someone submitted “must be in the style of a 40s noir.”
I spent a lot of time researching, and I already knew a lot about noir because it’s one of my favorite genres. I would love it if you could take a look and share any thoughts you have on it.
Thanks for your time!

Very impressive. Great use of voiceover and flashback. Elegant camera-work, direction and editing, with an effective low-key score. The leads are very good and convincing – the girl is a dish! The script is intriguing and the playbook compelling.
The only weaknesses are that the ending is a bit confusing as motive is not clear, and in some scenes the dialog comes across as hackneyed, for example ‘scene of the crime’ in “I saw you at the scene of the crime”. Something like “You were there – I saw you” would sound better.
I will feature the video in a post at filmsnoir.net later in the week.

Greetings to all fellow film noir lovers, I am writing from Anchorage, Alaska, to ask for your help.
We made a short film for a competition with the Anchorage International Film Festival. We wrote, shot, edited the short in 5 days. We are Youtube “like” dependent and can use whatever help you can give. Even just one “like” on YOUTUBE (not Facebook) can help save Christmas for our team. Thanks!!!!
Please, click on the link below to check out the short and vote with a like.
It’s a gritty film noir with some Dexter flavorings.
Here is more information about the QuickFreeze competition: http://electricigloocreative.com/quickfreeze/

Hello all Film Noir Fans,
I’m hoping that someone on this wonderful site might be able to help me.
I’m looking for the following poster and I’m wondering if anyone has seen it or knows of a collector who may have it.
Forgive the link this is the only image of this I have found:
Thank you all in advance for your time.
February 4, 2013 at 12:04 am
A small correction: it’s not “la nuit de carrefour” but “la nuit du carrefour”.
All the best

Hey Tony! Your site is awesome!
I’m a photographer who has been collaborating with a writer to create a film-noir inspired photo/text series that revolves around coffee. It’s hard to describe… but I think you’d enjoy it and you can see the first ‘episode’ here:
April 14, 2013 at 12:28 pm
Hi Mark. Interesting concept. I certainly look forward to developments. I will tweet it. Tony
June 14, 2014 at 6:08 am
I thought you might enjoy these clips from a noir feature I am directing.
Great noir site!
July 24, 2014 at 6:47 pm
Sorry for the delay in responding Thomas – I have been on sabbatical. I have tweeted the link and will check it out soonest.

I am a part of my brother’s film production crew for The Depths. The script is fantastic and is a film noir story on two writers trying to write the next big crime story but the obsession becomes too great for one and overtime their relationship deteriorates and the script becomes a reality.
My brother, Jamison LoCascio is extremely talented and our team also includes the producer Louis Ambrosio, executive producer Jay Thames and casting by Judy Henderson (all available on IMDB). We are struggling to get support for the campaign would and other film noir fans be able to support us? Anything makes a difference, as well as spreading the word to help us get one step closer to making this film a huge success.
October 3, 2014 at 12:07 pm
Hi Lisa. Thanks for your visit. I have featured your IndiGogo campaign on my Twitter, Facebook, and Google + feeds. Good luck with your project.
July 15, 2015 at 3:35 am
