A line from Jim Thompson - a great American writer, usually confined to pulp ficition but "The Getaway" and "The Grifters" and more recently "The Killer Inside Me" which have all been filmed set me on a course of reading Jim Thompson who also collaborated on "Paths of Glory"...a prolific writer and often mentioned along with Chandler and Cornell Woolrich as the masters of noir.  Woolrich I'm currently reading (discovered obviously by Alfred Hitch**** - "Rear Window") but also wrote under the name of Wiliam Irish.  Some novels of his turned into  films are "Black Angel" and "Phantom Lady" and "The Bride Wore Black"...

Glad you mentioned Cornell Woolrich--a very good and imo imortant mystery writer.
