The 250 Quintessential Noir Films listing contains 241 films that all contain three key ingredients.
The nine films, that have been included, that exclude at least one of these key ingredients are two Non-American-produced noir (The Third Man and Mr. Arkadin), four colour noir films (Leave Her to Heaven, Niagara, Party Girl and Slightly Scarlet), and three films from the early 1960s (Cape Fear, Underworld, U.S.A. and The Naked Kiss).
List has been curated by Bill Georgaris on They Shoot Pictures, Don't They?
List of the movies referenced in Gilmore Girls. Work in progress because I'm adding them as I watch them. They will be in order of when they are referenced. (Watched 7 others that are referenced later so will be added later so they are in the correct order.) Currently on movies referenced in 3x07.
Full reviews of each movie and how they are referenced can be found here: http://gilmoremovies.tumblr.com
