For the Love of Film (Noir)

(Cross-posted on the Preserving a Family Collection blog…)

During the next week, February 14 through 21, both “June and Art” and “Preserving a Family Collection” will be participating in “For the Love of Film (Noir): The Film Preservation Blogathon.”  It will be a bit of a stretch for both blogs, but I love the cause and the time is right – and by that I mean the 1949-1951 period covered by “June and Art” is right smack at the dark heart of film noir’s classic period.  Therefore, the timing couldn’t be more perfect for looking at film noir.  We're talking New York City at night, lonely subway rides, and shootouts viewed from a bus (all of which have been covered in past letters!).

What’s film noir?  Check out this beautiful introduction by Greg Ferrara of Cinema Styles to the blogathon and I expect you’ll recognize film noir when you see it:

The blogathon fun starts tomorrow!
