The Big Screen:
Celluoid Eyes


"Remember all the movies, Terry, we'd go see,
Tryin' to walk like the heroes we thought we had to be?"

-- Bruce Springsteen, "Hiding in the Backstreets"

"The camera lies all the time. It lies 24 times a second."
-- Brian De Palma

Since the beginning, the private eye has proven to be a popular hero in film. In fact, certain private detective films have represented their eras so well that they've become classics.
