CineJourneys – Episode 4 – The History of #Noirvember


We are joined by Marya E. Gates, the “professional cinephile” who has worked with TCM, FilmStruck, Netflix, Criterion, and many others. She famously coined Noirvember 14 years ago. It was a way to further her cinephile journey, and has grown to become a phenomenon in the years that followed. She talks about that in detail during our discussion, and we unpack many other topics such as women in noir, our favorite noirs, Gloria Grahame’s off-screen exploits, and looking at Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life as noir.
