Free Online Summer Course on Film Noir
What is film noir?
- “ Film Noir is one of Hollywood's only organic artistic movements.” (Source: Film Noir Foundation )
- “ Film noir is a cycle of mainly American films of the 1940's and 1950's exploring the darker aspects of modernity, and usually set in a criminal milieu or exploring the consequences of a criminal act.” (Source: Films Noir )
Ted Turner once said in a televised interview that “ Turner Classic Movies ” (TCM) was one of his most unprofitable business endeavors, money-wise. But he's OK with that. Because this cinema history which he chose to preserve was worth every invested penny he lost. So happy you feel that way Mr. Turner, because you preserved so many memories for so many people who will always be grateful. Fount this link to a free TCM online summer course in film noir. Sounds like fun huh??

► Honorable Mention - Side note:
Fellow freelance writer David Stone writes about a lot of cool stuff. His articles about classic movies are very educational and entertaining. Just thought to mention it, in case you're into old movies like me.
Also, if you can't take the course, here is an excellent link:
