Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid

Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid was a movie first released in 1982 directed by Carl Reiner and featuring the inimitable talents of comedian Steve Martin. It is both a pastiche and act of homage to film noir, the pulp-fiction detective movies of a bygone age.

The film's concept is an interesting one in that it is largely comprised of a collage effect of old black and white movie clips from films of the 1940s and 1950s with more recent footage of Martin and other actors (including Carl Reiner, Rachel Ward[?], and Reni Santoni[?]) similarly shot in black and white. In many ways the construction of the film anticipates the later Oscar winning movie, Forrest Gump.
