Summary
"In Death on the Cheap, Arthur Lyons looks at the history of the B movie and how it led to the genre that would come to be called noir, a genre that decades later would be transformed in such "neo-noir" films as Pulp Fiction, Fargo, and L.A. Confidential. The book, loaded with movie stills, also features a filmography (including video sources) of B films that have largely been ignored or neglected - "lost" to the general public but now restored to their rightful place in movie history thanks to Death on the Cheap."--BOOK JACKET
