Publisher Comments:

Welcome to Dark City, urban landscape of the imagination. A place where the men and women who created film noir often find themselves dangling from the same sinister heights as the silver-screen avatars to whom they gave life. Eddie Muller, who led readers on a guided tour of the seamier side of motion pictures in Grindhouse: The Forbidden World of 'Adults Only' Cinema, now takes us on a spellbinding trip through treacherous terrain: Hollywood in the post-World War II years, when art, politics, scandal, style--and brilliant craftsmanship--produced a new approach to moviemaking, and a new type of cultural mythology.
 
Dark City is a 1999 Edgar Award Nominee for Best Critical / Biographical Work.

Synopsis:

There were a million stories in the naked cities of film noir and this ultimate noir compendium tells 'em all--from classics like DOUBLE INDEMNITY and NIGHT AND THE CITY to lost gems such as PITFALL and TRY AND GET ME! Eddie Muller weaves stunning images with a savvy, sharp text that propels you down every side street of those haunting cityscapes. color photos.

Synopsis:

Dark City examines the genre of fim noir in all its terse, mysterious, angst-ridden glory. The book studies the world of film noir by entering this world and fully exploring it, both an urban landscape of the imagination and a purely cinematic realm of shadows, smoke, suspense, and sinister silver-screen avatars. Muller takes us on a spellbinding and fascinating trip through such trecherous terrain: Hollywood in the post-World War II years, when art, politics, scandal, style--and brilliant craftsmanship--produced a new approach to moviemaking, and a new type of cultural mythology.
