Back in Black The best of film noir movie posters It s time for some dark glamour. Seven decades after the term film noir was first coined by French critic Nino Frank, this new collection celebrates the genre s graphic glory with hundreds of its finest posters over the decades, from The Big Sleep and Double Indemnity to Vertigo and Touch of Evil.
The iconic images are organized chronologically and by key noir themes, including Love on the Run, Private Eye, the Heist, and the Psycho-Killer. Captivating in their graphic distillation of noir s sinister beauty, the posters simmer with the same tension, paranoia, and eroticism as their movie equivalents.
Along the way, we find the directorial tours de force of Billy Wilder, Fritz Lang, Robert Siodmak, and more, and such stars of the genre as Humphrey Bogart, Robert Mitchum, Lauren Bacall, and Joan Crawford, resplendent in all their tough guy or femme fatale glory.
