This work presents 369 British films produced between 1937 and 1964 that embody many of the same filmic qualities as those qblack filmsq made in the United States during the classic film noir era. This reference work makes a case for the inclusion of the British films in the film noir canon, which is still considered by some to be an exclusively American inventory. In the book's main section, the following information is presented for each film: a quote from the film; the title and release date; a rating based on the five-star system; the production company, director, cinematographer, screenwriter, and main performers; and a plot synopsis with author commentary. Appendices categorize films by rating, release date, director and cinematographer and also provide a noir and non-noir breakdown of the 47 films presented on the Edgar Wallace Mystery Theatre, a 1960s British television series that was also shown in the United States.Aiding Mike in his investigation are FBI Agent Art Rickerby (American film noir veteran Nolan), who is out to avenge the ... boring fisticua€os, and laughable romantic encounter with Eaton, who has problems maintaining an American accent.
