    Oversized coffee table volume with beautiful film noir one sheets and lobby cards, worthy of any fan's hard-earned dollars. The book is divided into two-sections: an index of your favorite noir star with their film resume and poster, from Bogie ("The Enforcer") to Claire Trevor ("Johnny Angel"). Then there's a section devoted to the bigger noir favorites with tons of poster, lobby card and pressbook stuff, like "The Blue Dahlia" and "The Lady In The Lake". I love this book!
