Dial N for Noir

There were a few common characteristics in the early noir films: a number of them showed the streets of America in a different light (literally!), had a male lead with a cynical, devil-may-care attitude, a femme fatale, forbidden love and an underlying theme of crime and suspense. Darkly lit alleys, sparsely populated rain-soaked streets and stylish hats were common visual elements.
