      Gorgeous deluxe collection of Noir posters, covering both the American and foreign markets. I dock it a star because, like most "mainstream" histories about the movies of the era, there is plenty of de rigueur clichés about the blacklist that'll induce eye-rolling in those of us who save our sympathies for Stalin's victims over the Hollywood Ten. I also suspect that the author's politics are the reason why the noir films of Elia Kazan go unmentioned in a otherwise comprehensive book.

      The text is minimal but informative. The real star here is the art. This oversized book is full of beautiful movie posters from the golden age of movie posters, the 40's and 50's.

      Rita Hayworth was moviedom's sex goddess before Marilyn Monroe replaced her on Hollywood's Olympus. Hayworth's beauty was exceptional, the stuff of miracles.

      If you like movie posters & you like film noir you'll probably like this oversized, coffee table book of film noir posters. Big pictures and a few short, informative paragraphs per page, which is just right. Don't judge the book by the not-very-attractive cover.

      This a beautiful collection of film noir movie posters from around the world. In any language the scenes depicted capture a passionate and dramatic time when posters captured the spirit of the movie. Great gift book
