Robert Siodmak. who is considered the master of film noir thrillers and crime melodramas, has long been seen as a mere assignment director, never an artist in complete control of his work. J.

J. Grecos study of Siodmaks Hollywood career dispels this view and presents a unique perspective on the studio system and the director who used cunning to get his own way within it. He incorporates both archival evidence and stylistic analysis to show a distinct correlation between the production histories of Siodmaks studio films and the directors central artistic purpose. Shedding new light on the career of this important film maker, this book is worthwhile reading for the film scholar, the lover of film noir and the fan of Siodmaks work.
