Film Noir collection featured on Boing Boing

The Internet Archive’s Film Noir collection was featured on Boing Boing today.  Thanks Jordan Z for pulling it together!  And thanks always to our users.

Earlier this week I remarked on Twitter how much I enjoyed Stanley Kubrik’s 1956 movie about a race track heist, The Killing. Jack Shafer replied, “Okay, now you’re ready for Detour (Edgar G. Ulmer). It will change your life.”

I checked Netflix and learned that Detour isn’t available there. But I remembered that archive.org has a large collection of public domain movies, so I looked there and lo and behold, they had it.

Archive.org’s Welcome to Film Noir: expressionistic crime dramas of the 40s and 50s: tough cops and private eyes, femme fatales, menan city streets and deserted backroads, bags of loot and dirty double-crossers.
