Abstract

Carl Franklin's Devil in a Blue Dress (1995) uses film noir's critical potential to present a studied assessment of Los Angeles' "dark" criminal terrain as it is defined by the color line. In this regard, the film pays significant attention to fig ures historically marginalized in postwar L.A.
