There’s a reason all the best film noir is set in Los Angeles. It’s the city’s contrast between the glitter and the grime. Also because Raymond Chandler lived there. And I suppose because the studios were there and it was easier to set them in Los Angeles than to either move production or make a set look like New York or Chicago or wherever. Although sometimes they did that anyway. But mostly it’s the glitter and the grime.
