  1. I think we can all agree by this point that there is a lot more to films noir than just "crime movies from a certain time period". We have seen a lot of movies that transcend genres like Mildred Pierce that might otherwise just be a woman's picture but veer into noir. But is there a movie out there that is a crime movie from the late 40's that is definitely not noir? Border Incident wasn't really noirish. It was definitely a social justice picture that involved crime, but here it is on the list. Mystery Street was a procedural, but here it is on the list. They were both really good movies and well worth my time, but does every crime movie from the late 40s and early 50s automatically become noir? Can we say that there are some that definitely are not noir? We define noir by what it is, but we also need to define it by what it isn't.
