  1. I am starting to flesh out my classic film book collection. And I have been trying to track down the best books on the history of the studio era, Scott Eyman's Lion Of Hollywood has been recommended to me as the definitive book about MGM, and there are others about Warner Bro's I am considering purchasing. I was wondering if anyone here can give me some recommendations, particularly for books about Fox, as there does not seem to be many out there. Thanks
  2. I just got a copy of this new book called "Analyzing 59 Classic Films: A Millennial's View". It looks at a bunch of movies from the 1950s and earlier. Pretty good writing and easy to read so far. Plus it got me interested in seeing some new flicks I haven't heard of. Just thought some people might be interested.

    Male Bookworms

    Does anyone know any pre-1977 movies where a defining characteristic of a male protagonist is that he's interested in books and reading?
  5. Ken Bruen recently wrote an article with his favorite noir novels. I was somewhat disappointed that I didn't see Jim Thompson, Donald Westlake, Hugh B. Cave or Andrew Vacchs on this list. Any of you have particular favorites? http://publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/industry-news/tip-sheet/article/67271-10-best-noir-novels.html#path/pw/by-topic/industry-news/tip-sheet/article/67271-10-best-noir-novels.html
  6. My apologies if this subject has been mentioned already, but I didn't see it, and thought that, since we're involved in a course as well, that some mention of books might be helpful. Of course, when I first went looking for something, I thought initially about reference books. Later, after I'd replied to a few posts, I realized that I was also mentioning the novels upon which so many great noirs are based, and that's so big that maybe we just end up with too many lists? My aim in starting this post is to get recommendations and reviews, and learning something from this Noir Community. I'm just trying to kick-off a discussion with some titles below which I've used. I haven't added general film references to avoid wearing out my welcome, but those are of course, also of interest: Reference Books Film Noir, Micheal L. Stephens A Comprehensive Encyclopedia of FIlm Noir, John Grant Film Noir - An Encyclopedic Reference . . , Alain Silver and Elizabeth Ward
