Samuel Fuller: About Film Noir
"I don't care if it's a mystery story, a Western, or the story of Julius Caesar. To me it's the emotion, the lies, the double-cross, whether it's Brutus doing it to Caesar or Bob Stack doing it to Robert Ryan [in House of Bamboo] that defines what kind of drama it is. I wanted that world, where people lived on the edge." An excerpt from Film Noir Reader 3 (November 2001, Limelight Editions).
