This is film noir, is it not? And if so (I vote yes), a very early one from 1941. Yet it doesn't make the usual lists. Grant excludes it. It fails to enter Gasscadd's list, and that one goes by a bunch of expert books.
Where am I going wrong to consider this noir? Is it really necessary to spell out the noir qualities of this great film?
WBA also has issued "Hell on Frisco Bay" in cinemascope.
I think these are blu-ray issues.
