Eddie Muller in 2006

Eddie Muller is an American writer based in San Francisco and is a second-generation San Franciscan per his website. He is known for writing books about movies, particularly film noir. Founder and president of the Film Noir Foundation, and co-programmer of the San Francisco Noir City film festival, Muller is considered a noir expert and is called on to write and talk about the film genre, notably on wry commentary tracks for Fox's film noir series of DVDs.

Novelist James Ellroy has dubbed him "The Czar of Noir". Muller studied with filmmaker George Kuchar at the San Francisco Art Institute in the late 1970s.

Muller is the son of a famed San Francisco boxing writer of the same name, whom he used as the basis for the character of Billy Nichols in his period crime novel The Distance, which was named the Best First Novel of 2002 by the Private Eye Writers of America. Billy Nichols returned in the 2003 novel Shadow Boxer.
