These are examples of Genre/Form Subject Headings that are useful for creating lists of films from the Vassar Library collection. Genre/Form Subject Headings are not always consistently applied, so for example, some of the videos in our collection with "noirish" elements do not have the subject heading "film noir," but the core titles do have this subject heading.
Most of the major film noir titles in the collection have this subject heading, but many films with noir elements do not. Use filmographies and title/director searches to expand your results beyond this set.
Films are notoriously difficult to categorize and index, and it isn't always possible to retrieve the groupings that you want using the subject headings in the catalog.
The American Film Institute and the British Film Institute frequently issue lists that are great starting points. Check for the titles in our catalogue, and you'll probably find them. If you find that we don't have a title, or if we have the VHS and you'd like us to replace it with the DVD or streaming access, request the purchase using an acquisition form.
