- The Maltese Falcon (1941) John Huston's adaptation of Dashiell Hammett's classic pulp mystery about a jewel-encrusted bird statue and the double-crossing men and women who will kill to get their hands on it is usually considered the first (arguably best) example of noir.
- Double Indemnity (1944) In one of the great playing-against-type performances of the ‘40s, the normally milquetoast Fred MacMurray stars as Walter Neff, an insurance salesman who gladly goes crooked when he falls for the sultry young wife of a poor sap who's just taken out a very large life insurance policy.

- Double Indemnity (1944) Video essay on Double Indemnity. Double Indemnity is the poster child of film noir, almost inevitably so. Directed by Billy Wilder and with a script co-penned by Raymond Chandler, it epitomizes the genre from the foundation up.

- The Third Man (1949) Insider Information on The Third Man. Film noir populated theaters at a significant time in history: the end of World War II. The best film noir movies tend to draw on that, but The Third Man has a noteworthy lens on that era since it was made in the UK rather than America.
- In a Lonely Place (1950) Video essay on In a Lonely Place. With all the film noir set in Los Angeles, there had to be one about the inner workings of Hollywood, right?
