Clute and Edwards on Rochester Public Radio with Bob Smith

During their visit to the George Eastman House in Rochester, NY (see previous post) Clute and Edwards were invited to appear on Public Radio WXXI.  With host Bob Smith, they spent the noon hour discussing all things noir: the great actors and directors of the genre; the hard-boiled literary and German Expressionistic visual origins of noir; the greatest films of the classic period of noir (1941-1958) and the many neo-noir styles that continue to inspire filmmakers in Hollywood and abroad; noir's influence on television; and much more.  Clute and Edwards also tackled questions from callers and their WXXI host in this wide-ranging conversation that serves a fun introduction to noir for all movie fans.   To hear the show, click here.
