Noir Novelists and Screenwriters

The Big Sleep

With the valuable assistance of Fanglei from China, who provided the names of screenwriters, I have revised my earlier post of noir novelists to produce a new post which includes screenwriters.  Again, I welcome revisions.

The listing has been transferred to a permanent page: Film Noir Writers Listing

  2. Hi!Tony D’Ambra,
    I am not sure if you are familiar with the website that I linked below, but I think that you may find this website of some interest when it comes to info(rmation) about articles about…films, famous mystery writers, mystery books and noir (based)novels.
    I think the administrator, of this board name Steve, isn’t in the best of health right now!…therefore, my “get~well wishes!” goes out to him!(and his family too!)



  3. Hi! Tony D’Ambra,
    Have you every checked out author Micheal Keaney’s two books on Film Noir?
    Micheal Keaney’s “British Film Noir Guide,”
    (This book may assist you when it comes to compiling
    your list of British Film Noir.)
    and Micheal Keaney’s “Film Noir Guide.”

  4. Hi! Tony D’Ambra,
    After I get rid of this “horrible” headache, I will sent you a list of all the films that are considered
    British film noirs that are featured in the former book.
    Hopefully,I will “actually” send you this information…because I am still waiting for the Movie Poster website to approve my submission and I never did locate the Val Lewton website.

    Take care!
    dcd 😉
