This is a request for help in writing my thesis (defending in December). I am also testing the uses of Tumblr, Twitter and other social media for crowd-sourcing in academic research.
I am making sure my bases are covered as I trace the influence of surrealism on film noir. Please send me everything you can think of (screenshots, gifs, articles, film titles, text based lists, suggestions, anything, EVERYTHING). Please reblog if you think your followers might have some information as well. The only incentive I can offer at this time is a listing on the acknowledgements in the thesis and published book (I already have a contract). That and my undying gratitude!
I am casting a wide net here, so anything that connects film noir and surrealism would be useful. Thanks in advance.
