  2. 962 Noir Films from They Shoot Pictures, Don't They? (including TSPDT's 250 Quintessential Noir Films)'s icon

    962 Noir Films from They Shoot Pictures, Don't They? (including TSPDT's 250 Quintessential Noir Films)

    Favs/dislikes: 78:2. The TSPDT 250 Quintessential Noir Films list contains 241 films that all contain three key ingredients. 1) They were all produced in the United States; 2) They were all shot in black-and-white; 3) They were all produced between 1940 to 1959. The nine films that have been included that exclude at least one of these key ingredients are two non-American-produced noir (The Third Man and Mr. Arkadin), four color noir films (Leave Her to Heaven, Niagara, Party Girl and Slightly Scarlet), and three films from the early 1960s (Cape Fear, Underworld, U.S.A. and The Naked Kiss). Other titles included in the list are noir precursors, modern noir, non-American noir, and additional films between 1940-1964 that have noir elements. Section changes will be listed in this complete list (so the reader will know where in the list modern noir films begin/end, etc.). Films 1 - 250 (The Accused through The Wrong Man) are TSPDT's 250 Quintessential Noir Films. Films 251 - 358 (The 13th Letter through A Woman's Secret) are "More American Noir Films and/or Films with Noir Elements from 1940 to 1964" Category A: films often cited as film noir. These films weren't far away from being included on the 250 Quintessential listing, and most of them contain many - if not all - of the classic noir ingredients. Films 359 - 513 (5 Against the House through Women's Prison) are "More American Noir Films and/or Films with Noir Elements from 1940 to 1964" Category B: films quite often cited as film noir, but not to the same degree as those listed in Category A. It must be considered that in most cases these films contain strong film noir elements. Films 514 - 750 (The Thirteenth Hour through A Woman's Vengeance) are "More American Noir Films and/or Films with Noir Elements from 1940 to 1964" Category C: films not often cited as film noir. These films include certain film noir characteristics, even though - in many cases - they belong in other clear-cut genres, e.g. Westerns. However, it should also be acknowledged that many of these films are without doubt 'fully-blown' noirs (of the very neglected variety). Films 751 - 825 (Another Man's Poison through Wicked as They Come) are British-produced noir (1940-1964). Films 826 - 837 (Bob le flambeur through The Wages of Fear) are French-produced noir (1940-1964). Films 838 - 843 (Ossessione through Stolen Identity) are classified as "other" non-American noir produced between 1940-1964: 1 Italian, 3 Japanese, 1 Mexican, and 1 Austrian, respectively. Films 844 - 871 (The Beast of the City through You Only Live Once) are "Noir-Precursors": films that shaped the look of noir before the style came into its own during the 1940s. All are American-produced except The Green Cockatoo (UK), La Bête Humaine, Pépé le Moko, and Quai des brumes (France), and M (Germany). Films 872 - 962 (Angel's Flight through The Salton Sea) are "Neo-Noir / Modern Noir" films made after the 'golden age' of film noir up to 2002. They are grouped them by decade, and all are American-produced, except for: French-produced: Le Samouraï, Le deuxième souffle, Le cercle rouge, Série noire, La femme Nikita, Léon, and Mulholland Dr. German-produced: Der amerikanische Freund UK-produced: The Big Sleep (1978), Get Carter (1971), and Mona Lisa

Then listed alphabetically. 6 times = 1 to 4 5 times = 5 to 26 4 times = 27 to 41 3 times = 42 to 56 2 times = 57 to 96 1 time = 97 to 132 The 2014 list is the 7th version and therefore the below films can be thought of as making the list 6 out 7 times, 5 out of 7 times, etc. Also, it is worth noting that the original 21st century list came out in January 2008 and therefore films made before that date have an advantage. I still find this list to be useful and interesting. I hope you do too.
