Searching for another fix of film noir?
Great news! Film noir author and TCM brand manager, Shannon Clute, will be visiting The Silver Screen Oasis crowd from Friday, Sept. 28th through Sunday, Sept. 30th. The thread devoted to a Q & A with Shannon Clute can be found here:
Shannon is the co-author of The Maltese Touch of Evil: Film Noir and Potential Criticism (Dartmouth College Press, 2011) and the co-creator of three popular podcast series: Out of the Past: Investigating Film Noir, a film history and analysis program; Behind the Black Mask: Mystery Writers Revealed, an author interview show; and Yaddocast, the official podcast of the prestigious artists' retreat Yaddo—all with Richard Edwards.

Here is an interview about Clute & Edwards' investigations into film noir:
Out of the Past was recently selected by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation for national radio transmission as part of their Top of The Pods series, and Yaddocast received mention in O, The Oprah Magazine.
A former professor who holds a PhD from Cornell University, Clute has been invited to speak on film noir at such institutions as the George Eastman House and WXXI public radio. He is also a scholar and writer of hard-boiled fiction, and his first novel was one of ten semi-finalists in the inaugural Court TV "Search for the Next Great Crime Writer" contest. He works as a brand manager for Turner Classic Movies in Atlanta.
As part of his job at TCM, he oversees the publication of the yearly TCM Film Festival program among other duties.
