[Free Kindle] ☣ Blackout: World War II and the Origins of Film Noir ♵ Challenging Conventional Scholarship Placing The Origins Of Film Noir In Postwar Hollywood, Sheri Chinen Biesen Finds The Genre S Roots Firmly Planted In The Political, Social, And Material Conditions Of Hollywood During The War After Pearl Harbor, America And Hollywood Experienced A Sharp Cultural Transformation That Made Horror, Shock, And Violence Not Only Palatable But Preferable Hard Times Necessitated Cheaper Sets, Fewer Lights, And Fresh Talent Censors As Well As The Movie Going Public Showed A New Tolerance For Sex And Violence And Female Producers Experienced Newfound Prominence In The IndustryBiesen Brings Prodigious Archival Research, Accessible Prose, And Imaginative Insights To Both Well Known Films Noir Of The Wartime Period The Maltese Falcon, The Big Sleep, And Double Indemnity And Others Often Overlooked Or Underrated Scarlet Street, Ministry Of Fear, Phantom Lady, And Stranger On The Third Floor Deserves highest marks for demonstrating that the Noir style actually originated pre World War II and that the stylistics were heavily influenced by the economics, rationing, and censorship during war time film production Loses a star because some of the supporting research bogs down the prose and would have been better as footnotes or as an appendix. This is a really fascinating read which outlines the historical influences and contexts which gave rise to the film noir genre.
