About Shadows and Satin
Welcome to the Shadows and Satin blog, devoted to the dark and shadowy universe of film noir, and the satin-soft world of the Pre-Code era — the two cinematic passions of my life.
Through this site, I hope to expose you to films you’ve never before seen, encourage you to remember those long forgotten, and celebrate the classics that you love to watch again and again. Although they are diametrically opposed in philosophy, content and tone, Film Noir and Pre-Code films nonetheless offer, in my opinion, among the best that classic film has to offer.
Join me, as we travel the narrow line tread by silken-clad strumpets and shady shysters — in shadow and satin.
