20th Century Fox Film Noir refers to a collection of films released on DVD by 20th Century Fox. The series, a spinoff of the earlier Fox Studio Classics line, was premiered in March 2005, with the release of the inaugural titles Call Northside 777, Laura and Panic in the Streets.

Fox Noirs released by Criterion[edit]

Currently,[when?] three film noir titles released by 20th Century Fox are available on DVD, but are not released by Fox as part of the Film Noir series. Instead, they are selections in The Criterion Collection DVD line. The films are Night and the City, Pickup on South Street and Thieves' Highway.
