Co-edited with my colleague, film scholar Dr. Christopher Weedman, this scholarly collection features case study chapters on single films that explore the ongoing usefulness of film noir as a lens through which to explore classic international cinema that is liminally positioned -- either between genres or in response to noir. Our goal is not to expand the noir canon but to recover lost nuances and give new life to specific classical era (1940s-1960s) films from diverse nations. Chapters include entries on films from Argentina, the Czechoslovakia, England, France, Japan, Poland, Spain, and the US. My chapter contribution is "Race and the Noir Western: Navigating The Walking Hills." The book is forthcoming from Edinburgh University Press as part of their Traditions in World Cinema Series (editors Linda Badley and R. Barton Palmer).
