Here at Snub Noir we tend to focus on firearms;  the use, care, carry and feeding of snub nose revolvers and pocket semi-autos. We don’t, however, spend as much time on the thread that ties those guns together with our community; film noir.  Robert Leudemann posted a nice article here the other day that opened the door on topic, so let’s expand a bit.

Classic film noir, ‘black film” in literal translation, describes a body of dramas mostly produced in Hollywood. These films were extremely popular from around 1940 through almost 1960. Some commentators argue that it is a genre unto itself, others suggest it is not. Those arguments get very spirited and still go on. I would submit that it is something else entirely.
