Example text

5 These stories of seedy private investigators and murderous adulterers had been realized on screen by a visual style that owed much to the German 36 R. Barton Palmer expressionism brought to Hollywood by a talented group of émigré directors. Films such as Murder My Sweet (Edward Dmytryk, 1944) and Double Indemnity (Billy Wilder, 1944) offered a break from the previous canons of Hollywood realism, with sequences dominated by chiaroscuro lighting, strangely angled or distorted framings and an imprisoning mise-en-scène that served as the external correlatives of the existential dead ends to which these fatalistic narratives usually delivered their unsympathetic characters, whose world-weary cynicism found its voice in a highly stylized argot far removed from everyday speech.

In “The Big Phone Call” (aired May 22, 1952), Friday and his partner quickly corral the criminal; the bulk of the episode details their explanation to him of the police methods that led to his capture. As in the neo-realist film, the emphasis is less on a compelling narrative (even though a conventional story provides the structure for each episode) and more on the representation of the rarely viewed world of criminal investigation. Webb had no interest in creating suspenseful action; those who tuned in could depend not only on Friday and his cohorts solving every case (and emerging unscathed) but also on the judicial system never failing to convict and sentence the felons appropriately.

27 This should come as no surprise. It would be simplistic to identify TV noir with just one genre, the police procedural, for example, or the detective series. 28 As The Prisoner, The X-Files, and Twin Peaks show, the development of TV noir extends to programs that share an affinity with these forms found in classic film noir. ” (Twin Peaks). With reference to these questions, each of the series is radically underdetermined, for there is more than one answer with which its episodes are consistent.
