1940 to 1950 was the heyday of Film Noir, that elusive mixture of stark film lighting and even starker emotions. Many films of that period explored the dark side of society - gangsters, hoodlums, prostitutes and killers - and showed how it corrupted the good and the beautiful. Even worse, sometimes the so called good and the beautiful revealed themselves to be even sicker than the dregs of society.
