Smoking guns, sharp hats, dangerous dames, fast talking and high trousers – what’s not to love about Film Noir? We can’t seem to get enough of these hard-boiled detective flicks, full of billowing cigarette smoke, bright sun shining through venetian blinds, and some of the snappiest dialogue this side of Chinatown.
We’ve rooted out ten of our favourite killer Film Noir quotes, so hold tight to that cheap cigar of yours, Keyes, and get to reading them (preferably out loud to yourself in the slickest gangster voice you can muster).
Who Framed Roger Rabbit (Robert Zemeckis, 1988)
