What I was really looking for is that they each directed at least one musical and at least one film noir----the noirs are: Preminger---LAURA, etc.-----------Zinnemann--ACT OF VIOLENCE------Wise--THE SET-UP...(I don't think too many other directors directed both musicals and noirs).....Your thread, Lavender............
