Twentieth Century Fox immediately purchased the film rights, and filming began in August 1941, starring Victor Mature as a promoter accused of murdering his protégée. This early noir film starred Betty Grable in her first nonmusical role as the sister of the murdered woman. ” This was an oblique reference by Fisher to the tormented novelist Cornell Woolrich, who was an acquaintance at the time. 30 The Hard-Boiled Influence Although Fisher began writing scripts in 1938, beginning with low-budget films for Universal, his status in Hollywood improved markedly after the success of I Wake Up Screaming, even though he did not contribute to the film adaptation.

After five Crane novels, Latimer became tired of the character and replaced the light tone of this series with a more somber, hard-edged style. However, when Latimer completed Solomon’s Vineyard he could not find an American publisher for the book, although it was released in Britain in 1941. A censored version eventually appeared in the United States by Mystery Book Magazine, where the editor changed the title to The Fifth Grave. A complete version did not appear in the United States until a small publisher, Blackmask, published it in 2004.

Consequently, John Huston’s The Maltese Falcon and Alfred Hitchcock’s Shadow of a Doubt (1943) did not immediately initiate a cycle of similar films in the early 1940s because the Office of War Information rejected such films as suitable entertainment. These films did not, Krutnik maintains, endorse the “general wartime ideology of commitment and community” (p. 36). While there is some truth in this argument, there were also notable film noirs released prior to Double Indemnity. Paramount, for example, produced two noir films in 1942: This Gun for Hire, based on Graham Greene’s novel, in May and The Street of Chance, an excellent adaptation of Cornell Woolrich’s The Black Curtain, in November.
