A good start.  Afro Now you can start adding things like Backfire, Highway 301, Secret Beyond the Door, 711 Ocean Drive, Specter of the Rose, The Spiritualist, Violent Saturday, The Web, etc.

Some of the dates are debatable, too.

I hope y'all appreciate the hard work and dedication of cigar joe, who singlehandedly took care of re-arranging the Noir index to make it better. All he cares about is the improvement of the SLWB, with no regard for the effort involved.

A very big THANK YOU and  Afro Afro for your work!

From the many and varied books written about Film Noir the often quoted time frame that these films fit into is usually 1941 to 1958 some occasionally stretch to 1959. Who came came up with this initially, and why is it so strictly adhered too?
 
The more Noirs I watch the more I'm questioning this. I'm beginning to come around to a different thought, and that is that Classic American Film Noir stretched from say 1940 to 1968 (1968 being the last general use of B&W film in production) here is the breakdown by year of Black & White Noirs (there may be a few more to add in, in that 1959 to 1968 stretch (the 1959 cut off possibly for major studio production but independent productions continued):
 
1940 (5)
1941 (11)
1942 (5)
1943 (5)
1944 (18)
1945 (22)
1946 (42)
1947 (53)
1948 (43)
1949 (52)
1950 (57)
1951 (39)
1952 (26)
1953 (21)
1954 (26)
1955 (20)
1956 (19)
1957 (12)
1958 (7)
1959 (7)
1960 (2)
1961 (5)
1962 (6)
1963 (1)
1964 (4)
1965 (3)
1966 (2)
1967 (2)
1968 (1)
 
I'm also thinking now that the Color Film Noirs within this 1940-1968 time frame were the first Neo Noirs so that the two sub genres/styles actually overlap. The catalyst for this new alignment is when I read a quote about Neo Noir that said that if the filmmakers made a conscience decision to film in black and white when color was the norm then it was an artistic decision and not one of necessity for budget purposes, Same the other way if B&W was the norm for low budget B Noirs then it was an artistic decision to film it color.
 
The color film Noir the first 30 years (again there maybe a few more in these early years but they as a whole really up ticked in the 1980s and 1990's):
 
1945 (1)
1947 (1)
1948 (1)
1953 (2)
1955 (3)
1956 (3)
1958 (1)
1966 (1)
1967 (1)
1969 (1)
1970 (2)
1971 (4)
1972 (1)
1973 (0)
1974 (2)

I'm currently reading a book on the subject and the reason for the 1958 is given as being the year of Welles movie.

Apparently, the movies made after that date and before the "neo-noir" are dubbed as "post-noir".

I think CJ's proposal is sound. 1958 is an arbitrary date. 1968 (shouldn't it be 1967, the last year b&w films were industry standard?) is at least tied to a change in the industry. Since the whole noir notion is an illusion anyway, it makes sense to have something concrete to go by.

I used 1968 to include The Pick-Up a sexploitation noir ;-)

I don't know why '58 is often selected either, that leaves out Odds Against Tomorrow (1959), maybe they are going by just major American studio productions.

But how many black-and-white noirs were there in the 60's? Are you stretching the period by a decade just to cover a handful of films?
