Those who aren’t familiar with the term “film noir” should know that it’s a cinematic term used to describe Hollywood dramas that are both sultry and cynical. The 1940s and 1950s were considered to be the classic period of film noir with most of the movies being in black and white and influenced by German Expressionist cinematography.

Some critics argue that film noir is better classified as a style or mood as opposed to a genre, which can be seen in films such as The Maltese Falcon, Sunset Boulevard, and Gilda. Only a true cinephile will be able to ace this classic film noir quiz.
