DARK PAGES is a bi-monthly print publication established 2005 and dedicated to all things Noir: indepth biographies of actors, actresses, directors, pulp writers, comparisons of novels to films, reader letters and suggestions, trivia quotes, a Noir on TV and DVD viewing calendar full of interesting bios and information. DP does an annual giant issue, out at year’s end, focusing on all the angles of one special noir (2010: Out of the Past , 2011: Double Indemnity, 2012: Nightmare Alley )
I am such a regular contributor at DP, or so hard to get rid of, that they have been kind enough to bestow upon me the title of Senior Writer, and let me run the printing press sometimes. Then I run to this blog and gossip about everything that’s in the new issues.
for Dark Pages Double Indemnity special issue 2011, I wrote on Edith Head, Wally Westmore, cinematographer John Seitz, designers/art dept. Hans Dreier, Hal Pereira & Bert Granger. for Dark Pages Out of the Past special issue 2010, I wrote on the people behind the scenes, including stories from the set, bios of director Jacques Tourneur, DP Nick Musuraca, Producer Warren Duff, editor Sam Beetley, set decorator Darrell Silvera, costumer Ed Stevenson, composer Roy Webb. I also wrote bios of pioneering black actress Theresa Harris and OOTP poster artist William Rose. For the 2012 Nightmare Alley issue I had the honor of choosing the spotlight movie, and wrote all about Tyrone Power’s performance & director Edmund Goulding.
