Noir (HUM303/HUM425)

We’re going to be watching clips from a number of different films, but we won’t have the time to screen any one of them in its entirety. I recommend very strongly that you make the time to do this outside of class. Here is a list of noirs from the “main cycle” (Bould) or the “classical period” (Spicer) that I’ll be bringing to class:

Double Indemnity (1944)

Laura (1944)

The Big Sleep (1945 original cut)

Fallen Angel (1945)

Murder My Sweet (1945)

Strange Illusion (1945)

Dark Passage (1947)

Gun Crazy (1949)

Whirlpool (1949)

Sunset Boulevard (1950)

The Big Heat (1953)

Murder by Contract (1958)

Touch of Evil (1958)
