What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Noah Isenberg does a remarkable job of sifting through decades-old interviews and archive material to bring you the low-down.' Empire

'The BFI Film Classics companion to everyone's favourite B noir is compact but stocked with years of research. Professor Isenberg acts as our Virgil as we squirm through the stations of Edgar Ulmer's vision of Hell. Given the professor's knowledge of German, German-Jewish, and American film traditions, he's an appropriate guide.' - Noir City Sentinel
