With its singular focus on the very best portrait photography of the Film Noir era, every page of this coffee table volume is rich in brooding atmosphere. The portraits were taken by premiere studio photographers like Robert Coburn, Ernest Bachrach and A.L. Whitey. Their remarkable ability to exaggerate the play of shadow and light to dramatic effect is the reason that their work still has the same ability to arrest the viewer as it did in the 1940s. The photographs remain some of the most innovative and striking portraits in the history of cinema.
