    These two great German directors came to America and gave a visual style to film noir. Hitchcock, of course, was English – so the look and style of film noir was mostly defined by foreigners such as these. The Rough Guide to Film Noir discusses all those elements, including the cinematographers (one of the sections I worked on in this book). Film Noir hit its zenith in the late ‘40s, a time when veterans were returning home in droves after having witnessed unimaginable horrors. Under the weight of war trauma, men felt the brittle veneer of traditional masculinity – strong, stoic and dominant -- crack and crumble. Film Noir tapped into this anxiety.
