LIST IN PROGRESS BASED ON TSPDT ANNOUNCEMENTS

In terms of composition, the 1,000 Noir Films listing is primarily comprised of noir films that were produced in the United States, shot in black-and-white, and produced/released during the 1940s and 1950s (1940 to 1959). This is often referred to as the Classic American Noir period.

Films within the 1,000 Noir Films listing that do not encompass all three of these ‘ingredients’ will be labelled accordingly within their entry, as follows:

1) Films not produced in the United States, will be labelled according to their nationality, e.g. Brit-Noir for a UK-produced noir, French Noir for a French-produced noir, etc.
2) Films shot in colour will be labelled as a Colour-Noir.
3) Films released prior to 1940 will be labelled as a Noir-Precursor, films released in the 1960s will be labelled as a Late-Noir, and films released from 1970 onwards will be labelled as a Neo-Noir.
4) Additionally, films containing noir elements that are clearly outside the crime genre will be labelled accordingly. For example, as a Western Noir, or as a Sci-Fi Noir, etc.
