Eddie Muller, president and founder of the Film Noir Foundation, is pairing with Turner Classic Movies (TCM) to bring film noir back to television with Noir Alley. Every Sunday at 10 a.m. beginning March 5th, Muller will explore the genre from different angles as he introduces a different noir classic each week. 

“With this series dedicated to nothing but film noir, we will trace the evolution from its cinematic origins to its influence on more recent films,” said Charles Tabesh, senior vice president of programming for TCM. “As one of the foremost experts on film noir and a noir preservationist, Eddie Muller is the perfect guide to lead fans into the shadows each week for an immersive, hard-boiled experience.”

The first month of Noir Alley will present four absolute classics: 

  • March 5: The Maltese Falcon (1941)
  • March 12: Detour (1945)
  • March 19: Act of Violence (1948)
  • March 26: Tension (1949)
