Freelance editor and blogger. I've been reading mystery and detective stories since I was a child. I read every Nancy Drew mystery I could get my hands on when I was young. Since taking Richard Edwards's "Summer of Darkness" course in the summer of 2015 and watching noir faithfully ever since, I think I can say that I am no longer new to film noir and neo-noir.
It's a Wonderful Life (1946): the board of the Bedford Savings and Loan votes George Bailey in after his father's death.
Sabrina (1954): Humphrey Bogart runs the family business from a swanky board room.
