Letís get started! I have a feeling that as I go through this countdown, Iíll be waging a continuous battle against my own judgment, and the compulsion to reorder my selections. As I pause over each image to write the blurbs, I find myself noticing new details and making new discoveries that beg for a reassessment of the list. As a rule, I wonít do this unless I feel my oversight is positively glaring. I need remind myself that I looked at over 500 film noir one-sheets for this exercise (over the course of numerous sittings, not to mention the time spent in Photoshop) and that for every design I chose to include at least four were left out.
