Do you remember which film got you hooked on the whole noir genre? For me it was probably when I was about 13 years old and watched The Night of the Hunter with my dad. For a long time it was my favorite movie and Robert Mitchum is still one of my favorite actors.
I always liked the atmosphere and the lighting of the film which led me to watch other films from the same era. It didn't occur to me that it was a part of the film noir genre until later though, when I saw Double Indemnity (still my favorite noir). I'm going to give The Night of the Hunter the most cred though since it not only led me to watch film noir but to get interested in cinema altogether.
So which film got you hooked?
