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!

AMERICAN CINEMA, “Film Noir” (PBS, 1995)
