  1. The opening of The Letter definitely takes no time getting into the story. Just like Woman on the Run, a gunshot sets the story. One can easily connect the dots in the evolution of Film Noir with what we've already been Daily Dosed with.
  2. In response to Q3, I can see how film noir uses opening scenes like this one where everything seems beautiful and charming but once you get a look inside the setting you get to see the dark and gritty...one opening scene that stands out to me in the future of film noir is that of Blue Velvet, where everything looks beautiful and colorful but once you step behind closed doors you see the ugly truths.
  3. Thats a good point and makes me think of a movie I recently watched actually entitled Predestination....though it was a sci-fi film, i could actually see some influences of the Noir genre with the mystique and fatalism themes
