Author's Note

Film noir was a bit of a mystery to me before I researched this article. I knew I loved films that were described as film noir, but I didn't have a sense of what film noir was when I saw it. The Lee Horsley Web site was incredibly helpful in understanding film noir. I enjoyed learning more about both the art and history behind film noir, and I can certainly understand the industry's continued love of the style. In addition, I now have a list of film noir and neo noir movies I must see soon!
