1940s Film Noir Music

If you enjoy the art of using music to enhance a movie’s foreboding atmosphere, we now have a playlist of twenty terrific Film Noir movie themes, with more in the pipeline. The titles include “Laura, Force Of Evil, The Blue Gardenia, The Postman Always Rings Twice” and sixteen other and equally important pieces.

I believe the score from Double Indemnity captures the mood and follows the locations, events, and characters nearly perfectly, and maybe better than any other of the era. It’s all very compelling, however!
