The idea for a COMPLETE FILM NOIR LIST came to me when I realized that I was “wearing out” a then recently purchased copy of the Film Noir Encyclopedia, 3rd edition. My initial plan was to make just a list of the titles listed in this reference so I could better plan my film noir viewing on AMC (American Movie Classics). Realizing that this plan was going to take some keyboard time, I thought of doing a search on the Internet Movie DataBase (here after referred to as the IMDB). By using the extended search with selected criteria, I could produce a list for importing to a text editor. Since that initial list was compiled almost six years ago, I have added additional reference sources, marked titles released on NTSC laserdisc and NTSC Region 1 DVD formats. When a close friend complained about the length of the list as it passed 600 titles, the idea of producing a subset list of CONSENSUS FILM NOIR was born. Several years ago, a DVD producer wrote me as follows: “I'd caution you not to put too much faith in the film noir guides, since it's not as if there's some Film Noir Licensing Board that reviews films and hands out Certificates of Authenticity. The authors of those books are just people, limited by their own knowledge of and access to films for review, so guidebooks on noir are naturally weighted towards the more readily available studio pictures, like Double Indemnity or Kiss Me Deadly or The Big Sleep, since the many low-budget B noirs from indie producers or overseas have mostly fallen into obscurity.” There is truth in what the producer says, but if writers of (film noir) guides haven’t seen the films, what chance does an ordinary enthusiast have. This COMPLETE FILM NOIR LIST provides 914 titles identified by ten sources from the period 1940 through 1965. Using this list as a guide, you can readily identify potential titles for your viewing pleasure and decide for yourself whether they are really film noir or not!! The IMDB selections were located on 7-Jan-2004 by using the extended search feature with the following criteria - Year: 1940-1965, Genres: Film-Noir & Language: English. These selections were marked, 'printed' to a text file, and then realphabetized using Leonard Maltin's methods. Using this list of 395 titles as a starting point, titles listed in nine other sources were added for the same years to generate this list of 914 titles (886 titles from the period 1940-1959 and an additional 28 titles from 1960-1965). This list includes 740 titles from the FILM NOIR GUIDE, omitting five non-English language titles. Any non-English language titles from other sources have also been omitted, if identified. Boldface titles were released in NTSC laserdisc format; underlined titles have been released/announced on NTSC Region 1 DVD format as of 24-October-2006. NOTE: When the extended search on the IMDB was done on 16-May-2001, using the same criteria, 360 titles resulted, including titles from the 1960's. An IMDB search on 27-April-1999, (again) using the same criteria, 315 titles resulted. For this search, no titles in the 1960's resulted and only one title from 1959 [omitting such classics previously designated "FILM NOIR" as Odds Against Tomorrow (1959), The Manchurian Candidate (1962) and The Naked Kiss (1964)]. From the master list of 914 titles, compiled from ten sources, the list was manually highlighted to include those titles appearing on at least eight of the ten sources, producing a list of 258/886 titles identified as CONSENSUS NOIR (19401959). Seven of the ten sources included titles from the 1960s (and later). Titles identified by at least five of the seven sources have been highlighted with a contrasting color, producing a list of 7/28 titles identified as CONSENSUS NOIR (19601965).
