What is Film Noir? According to Wikipedia, “a cinematic term used primarily to describe stylish Hollywood crime dramas, particularly those that emphasize cynical attitudes and sexual motivations. Hollywood’s classic film noir period is generally regarded as stretching from the early 1940s to the late 1950s.”

There will also be a discussion after the films with local film enthusiast, Frank Kieck, who is an instructor of film at the LIFE Program at Mt. St. Mary College & at the Encore Program at OCCC.
