  • Overview
    Set in Hollywood in the late 1940s, City of Angels is a film noir style detective story that presents its own writer, Stine, who is having trouble transposing his book onto the big screen. In parallel, it follows the protagonist of the film, Detective Stone, on his adventures... as Stine writes. Many of the characters have a counterpart in the other world; these parts may be double cast. It is usually staged with the "real-life" scenes in "color" and the movie scenes in "black and white".
