All very interesting. I'd like to see the same kind of analysis applied to neo-noirs, simply better to understand if film-makers still are related to the social-political context in definite ways.
It's interesting that Paramount departed from the book and made Trevor a false ally. The other change is interesting too, which is that law enforcement vs. working class appears in the novel but not the movie.
I also wonder if you've considered extending your analysis to other genres of the periods you discuss.
