Originally produced for PBS, the “American Cinema” series examined American film. This one-hour episode examines film noir. From lighting techniques to directors and actors, and the genre’s roots in German expressionism, the program is an excellent survey of the genre. All the great noirs are featured. Particularly fascinating are contemporary interviews with noir luminaries Edward Dmytryk, Joseph H. Lewis, A.I. Bezzerides, and Marie Windsor. Richard Widmark supplies a nuanced voice-over for some scenes. Martin Scorsese is really the main interest as he talks about “Force of Evil” in great detail and talks about what an important film it was in his life and career. He also talks about “Mean Streets” and what aspects of the noir he was trying to work into it. —filmsnoir.net
