This special issue of Contrappasso on 'Writers at the Movies' follows our special 'Noir' issue of late 2013. Once again we've assembled a collection of poems, essays, fiction, and interviews-some republished, some appearing for the first time. In this instance, the common theme is 'literary cinephilia.'

Some of the pieces collected here focus on a single film: Alfred Hitchcock's Murder! (1930), Orson Welles's rediscovered Too Much Johnson (1938), Elia Kazan's Man On A Tight Rope (1952), Douglas Sirk's Written on the Wind (1955), and Robert Siodmak's Custer of the West (1968). Other pieces zoom in on an individual: Eric Rohmer, Jean Negulesco, Claire Danes, the Black Dahlia, Sal Mineo, Montgomery Clift, and Elmore Leonard.

Contains: essays by Luc Sante, Sarah Berry, Richard Lowenstein, Richard Hugo, Clive Sinclair, Michael Eaton, Jon Lewis, Anthony May; fiction by Barry Gifford; poetry by Michael Atkinson, R. Zamora Linmark, and James Franco; and interviews with critic Jonathan Rosenbaum, writer-director Emmanuel Mouret, film preservationist Scott Simmon, and video essayist Richard Misek.

Edited by Noel King & Matthew Asprey Gear.
