THE ACCUSED
1948, Paramount, 101 min, USA, Dir: William Dieterle

A spinsterish college professor (Loretta Young) finds herself in jeopardy after killing an amorous student in self-defense. As the noose tightens around her, both the victim’s guardian (Robert Cummings) and a dogged homicide detective (Wendell Corey) begin to fall for her - apparently being a killer makes her irresistible to men. The provocative script gives a decidedly feminine slant to a classic noir premise. Presented in a gorgeously restored print, giving new life to a neglected classic of the genre.

THE HUNTED
1948, Warner Bros., 66 min, USA, Dir: Jack Bernhard

Paroled after serving time for her part in a jewel heist, Laura Mead (Belita) returns to the city looking to reclaim her life. Waiting in the shadows is her former boyfriend, detective Johnny Saxon (Preston Foster) - who may have railroaded her into the pen out of jealousy. When Laura turns up in Johnny’s apartment, is she looking to forgive … or make good on her threat to kill the man who sent her up? A clever, ambiguous twist on the typical femme fatale story, this hypnotic Poverty Row noir from director Jack Bernhard (DECOY) has been resurrected from obscurity in a new print.
