Portland State University Classical Hollywood Cinema Discussion


I have uploaded chapter 4 of “More than Night Film Noir in Its Contexts”. not more than 350 words

Ch. 4 Reading questions: “Low is High”

1. What is the difference between an “A” and a “B” picture in classical Hollywood? Is it accurate to say the majority of noirs were “B” pictures?

2. According to Naremore, where might we find the equivalent of B-genre pictures in the later decades of the twentieth century? Explain. (can you use quote from the book in this question)
