Great post and one with which I completely agree. Classical noir is quite sexier -- yes, "dangerously sexier" -- than most of today's movies. This is something I've attempted to explain to my film students via DOUBLE INDEMNITY and BODY HEAT; sometimes they get it, other times, not so much. I've written further on this class discussion here, if you're interested: http://kellimarshall.net/unmuzzledthoughts/teaching/doubleindemnity-bodyheat

Thanks again for an interesting read!
