    Abstract:
    “Somewhere in the Night” is an insightful look into one of the most influential genres of the 20th century. Poet and scholar Nicholas Christopher delivers to his readers a compelling personal journey into the mysteries of movies as diverse as D.O.A., Sunset Boulevard, and even Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life. It is a sprawling subject, since there are up to 300 films spread over three decades that can be called “noir,” and Christopher approaches the subject with zeal.
