Best of Film Noir is a must-see for film noir buffs, as it remembers the golden age of film noir and details the production process of some of the great films. Through archive footage of some of the most celebrated film noir actors and filmmakers, as well as all new interviews, Best of Film Noir provides a new look at the old standards. Rod Steiger speaks about his experience filming The Big Knife. James Bacon talks about Humphrey Bogart's off-screen personality, and Janet Leigh comments on the talent of Orson Welles and his involvement with Touch of Evil. Also included are condensed versions of two films, Detour and D.O.A. Detour, starring Ann Savage and Tom Neal, is a tense on-the-road story of a man who gets caught up in murder and blackmail while hitchhiking to California. Roger Ebert placed Detour on his list of great films, and called it “an embodiment of the guilty soul of film noir.” D.O.A. Stars Edmund O'Brien as a poisoned man frantic to reveal his murderer before the poison kills him. Another classic, D.O.A. was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the United States National Film Registry.moreless
