Film historian Charles Pappas, author of It's a Bitter Little World: The Smartest, Toughest, Nastiest Quotes from Film Noir, discusses his favorite film noir movies, actors, directors and dialogue. In his terrific book, Pappas celebrates the hardboiled language of the genre's classics from The Maltese Falcon to U-Turn, and more. Hopelessly addicted to film noir, Charles Pappas is a mild-mannered grandfather, but he admits to still being moderately dangerous. Clearly he loves cynical, dark movies about losers who seek the very thing that gets them killed. This popular episode is a must-hear for fans of film noir and for movie addcts who want to know more about this intriguing genre.
