Blast of Silence (1961)

A hired killer from Cleveland has a job to do on a second-string mob boss in New York. But a special girl from his past, and a fat gun dealer with pet rats, each gets in his way.


@bal3x: Well it is basically because Orson Welles' "Touch of Evil" (1958/59) is regarded as the last true noirfilm and subsequently all made after that are labelled neo-noir or post-noir. Noir is thought of as a genre operating within a specific time period .
