Where Film Noir Lives...Too!
In the Fall 2013 issue of NOIR CITY e-magazine, 12 writers pay homage to Dan Duryea—an actor always front and center in film noir. The disturbingly charismatic Duryea appeared in 18 films of the genre, including major works by great directors (Scarlet Street , Criss Cross ) and in neglected gems that it took years of searching to uncover (Larceny , Manhandled  and in the FNF's most recent restoration project, Too Late for Tears ). It didn't matter the quality of the film, Duryea never disappointed.
Also in this issue, Steve Kronenberg distills another film noir icon's noir legacy into an in-depth consideration of a single defining film—the actor Peter Lorre's lone outing as a director, Der Verlorene (The Lost One). And in addition to the usual roundup of new books and movies, editor Don Malcolm commemorates the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination with several articles exploring the symbiosis between that watershed event and the culture of noir.
Finally, there's a look at the indefatigable Arnold Hano, editor of Lion Books (1949-54), and the man responsible for publishing paperback originals by Jim Thompson and David Goodis, among many others. At 91, Hano remains a bright and wisecracking raconteur and his discussion with interviewer Ben Terrall is a rare treat.
