The Jan Price Show All About Movies

Eddie Muller - Dark City: Lost World of Film Noir

September 11, 2021

Turner Classic Movie's Host of Noir Alley, Eddie Muller, discusses with Jan Price his revised and expanded book edition, “Dark City: Lost World of Film Noir.”

From Turner Classic Movies and "Czar of Noir" Eddie Muller, this revised and expanded edition of the classic book on film noir will be a must-have for the cult movie genre's dedicated fans.

This revised and expanded edition of Eddie Muller's Dark City is a film noir lover's bible, taking readers on a tour of the urban landscape of the grim and gritty genre in a definitive, highly illustrated volume. Dark City expands with new chapters and a fresh collection of restored photos that illustrate the mythic landscape of the imagination. It's a place where the men and women who created film noir often find themselves dangling from the same sinister heights as the silver-screen avatars to whom they gave life. Eddie Muller, host of Turner Classic Movies' Noir Alley, takes readers on a spellbinding trip through treacherous terrain: Hollywood in the post-World War II years, where art, politics, scandal, style -- and brilliant craftsmanship -- produced a new approach to moviemaking, and a new type of cultural mythology.
