Uses over 30 film clips and interviews about the tough guys and the femme fatales to illustrate the aspects of the film noir genre. Jeffrey Wells discusses _Big Sleep, The (1946)_, Touch of Evil (1958), Kiss Me Deadly (1955), D.O.A. (1950), Out of the Past (1947), _Against All Odds_, Laura (1944), and Kiss of Death (1947).

In films from the early 1940s to the present day, they entertain us with intrigue, conflict, and lust. Written by
