Day 24: Favorite Documentary
I’m more a fan of reading about noir than watching documentaries, and more a fan of watching noir than reading about it. But one PBS special is definitely worth seeing. It features:
- a sincere attempt to elucidate
- includes comments from noir writers, directors, and articulate scholars
- narrator is Richard Widmark
That’s good enough for me!
