The Rules of Film Noir


Matthew Sweet explores his rules of 1940s and 50s American film noir thrillers: *Choose a dame with no past and a hero with no future *Use no fiction but pulp fiction *See America through a stranger's eyes *Make it any colour as long as it's black
*It ain't what you say, it's the way that you say it

This programme originally aired on August 22nd 2009 on BBC4.
