ROCKPORT, Mass., Oct. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Film Detective (TFD), a classic media streaming network and film archive that restores and distributes classic films for today’s cord-cutters is celebrating the darkest corners of cinema, presenting viewers with the most tantalizing film noir favorites every night at 8PM ET in November.
Starring film noir royalty Barbara Stanwyck, Lizabeth Scott, Peter Lorre, and Hedy Lamarr, TFD’s Noirvember is bringing viewers back to film of the 1940s-1950s, where hardboiled detectives drove themselves to the edge, femmes fatales found a taste for destruction, and average Joes were lured to the wrong side of the law. Such esteemed classics as Too Late for Tears (1949), Detour (1945), and Kansas City Confidential (1952) will join the Noirvember line-up.
Multiple new arrivals will accompany The Film Detective’s film noir spotlight this November.
