  1. I just found this on the TCM message boards...an interesting read about British Noir! http://noirworthwatching.blogspot.com/2015_01_01_archive.html
  2. Thanks for the suggestions...I appreciate all the ideas: searching them out will give me something to do in the long lonely nights after this course finishes!

Would anyone care to enlighten me with some recommendations?
