Gloria Grahame may be the most popular actress in the noir genre, and the details of her life have been well documented, including the recent biopic Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool. Our cover story for NOIR CITY Magazine’s Issue 32 offers a fascinating and fresh perspective: an exploration of Grahame's onscreen legacy by actress Dana Delany, who candidly admits Gloria has been her lifelong muse. It's a unique opportunity to venture inside the craft, "actor to actor."
