TOO LATE FOR TEARS
1949, 99 min, USA, Dir: Byron Haskin

A ruthless housewife is determined to keep an ill-gotten satchel of cash, even if it means murder. One of the great noirs of the classic era, long thought lost but now returned to the big screen! "You know, Tiger, I didn't know they made 'em as beautiful as you are, and as smart, or as hard. Here, you can have the gun." Starring Lizabeth Scott, Dan Duryea, Arthur Kennedy.
BLAKE: Looking for something?

JANE: My lipstick.

BLAKE: Colt? Or a Smith and Wesson?


HELL’S HALF ACRE
1954, Paramount, 91 min, USA, Dir: John Auer

This wonderfully trashy Steve Fisher yarn concerns a woman (Evelyn Keyes) who heads to Hawaii in search of her husband (Wendell Corey), believed killed in the Pearl Harbor attack. Her only clue? A hit record with lyrics he’d written to her! Keyes is spunky and irresistible, as is Elsa Lanchester (as a gabby cabbie). The great Marie Windsor is the slatternly wife of a drunken sleaze (Jesse White). Filmed on location in Honolulu’s notorious red-light district. Don’t miss Tiki Noir on the big screen! Also starring Nancy Gates, Philip Ahn and Keye Luke.


ROAD HOUSE
1948, 20th Century Fox, 95 min, USA, Dir: Jean Negulesco

A star-powered faceoff between two film noir legends! Sparks fly when sassy Ida Lupino takes a job crooning in psychotic Richard Widmark's rural roadhouse. When she throws him over for his boyhood chum (Cornel Wilde), things really heat up. Ida sings the classics "One for My Baby" and "Again."
