THE BLUE DAHLIA
1946, Universal, 96 min, USA, Dir: George Marshall

Hard-luck WWII vet Alan Ladd returns to Los Angeles only to become the prime suspect in the murder of his two-timing wife (Doris Dowling). Fortunately, plucky Veronica Lake is around to help him navigate the twists and turns of Raymond Chandler’s Oscar-nominated screenplay. Ladd is accompanied by his faithful dogface pal William Bendix and a pre-Ward Cleaver Hugh Beaumont. An exquisite time capsule of 1940s L.A. hardboiled style, featuring the impeccable wardrobe stylings of Edith Head. Script by Raymond Chandler.


35 mm!
70th Anniversary! Not on DVD!

I LOVE TROUBLE
1948, Sony Repertory, 93 min, USA, Dir: S. Sylvan Simon

Franchot Tone is a wisecracking private eye sleuthing his way through a bevy of treacherous dames in this playful homage to Raymond Chandler, written by future TV legend Roy Huggins (creator of iconic small-screen series such as "77 Sunset Strip," "The Fugitive" and " The Rockford Files"). On-location sequences featuring midcentury Wilshire, Venice and Long Beach abound. Featuring Janet Blair, Janis Carter, Adele Jergens, Glenda Farrell, John Ireland and (of course) Raymond Burr.


Special Ticket Price: $15. No vouchers. Sponsored by Warner Archive, the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles, Hoccomocco Pictures/Thin Ice, Sweeney Todd's Barber Shop, Hollywood Heritage and William M. Paparian, Attorney at Law. Opening night beverage sponsor: Califia Farms Nitro Brew and The Cookie Department.
