I had an odd intro to Film Noir. When I was about 8 years old,I went to the movies to see the Steve Martin film "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid" and that was my gateway to Film Noir. In the film, Martin "co-stars" with the heavyweights of Film Noir via wonderfully edited clips from films such as "Double Indemnity", "The Big Sleep" and "White Heat". Martin and Carl Reiner's collaboration was a loving parody/homage to a Film Noir and it introduced me to that dark world. Watching this movie made me want to track down all of the movies featured in it. And soon my love of Film Noir was in full swing.
