APPOINTMENT WITH DANGER
1951, Paramount, 90 min, Dir: Lewis Allen

Taciturn and tight-lipped Alan Ladd stars as a relentless postal investigator who infiltrates the ruthless gang that murdered his co-worker; his only ally is a reluctant nun (Phyllis Calvert) who was the sole witness to the crime. The stellar supporting cast includes Paul Stewart, Jan Sterling and future “Dragnet” partners Jack Webb and Harry Morgan - as a pair of ruthless killers! Filmed on location in Chicago and Gary, Indiana. Don’t miss this ultra-rare 35mm print!

SHADOW ON THE WALL
1950, Warner Bros. , 84 min, Dir: Patrick Jackson

A young girl (Gigi Perreau) witnesses the murder of her stepmother, but represses all memory of it. Her father is charged and faces the hot seat. Her doctor tries to coax out the truth. The culprit wants to wipe out her memory forever. A stunning character shift for Ann Sothern, beloved star of MGM’s popular MAISIE film series, highlights this suspenseful adaptation of “Death in the Doll’s House.” British documentarian Pat Jackson was clearly liberated by noir’s expressionistic flourishes, concocting an overlooked gem. Co-starring Zachary Scott, Nancy (Davis) Reagan and Kristine Miller.
