Our annual Noir City series opens with a new print of classic thriller THIS GUN FOR HIRE, starring Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake, followed by the never-on-DVD noir QUIET PLEASE, MURDER, starring George Sanders as a master forger. Introduction by Eddie Muller of the Film Noir Foundation. Cocktail hour between films for all ticket buyers.
As our film noir series continues, Ray Milland plays a Londoner who’s released after two years in an asylum - and walks straight into a network of Nazi spies in Fritz Lang's MINISTRY OF FEAR, followed by William Cameron Menzies' ADDRESS UNKNOWN, in which friends Paul Lukas and Morris Carnovsky become enmeshed in a Nazi-wrought nightmare before World War II. Introduction by Eddie Muller of the Film Noir Foundation.
Our film noir series continues with this suspenseful double bill. First, Deanna Durbin stars as a witness to a possible murder on LADY ON A TRAIN. Then, Budd Boetticher's ESCAPE IN THE FOG follows army nurse Nina Foch who dreams about a trio of men committing murder on the Golden Gate Bridge - and then meets the victim. Introduction by Eddie Muller of the Film Noir Foundation.
Our Noir City series continues with another great A-B double feature. In THE DARK CORNER, wrongly convicted shamus Mark Stevens is sprung from prison, but bad luck sticks to his gummed shoes. Then it's BEHIND GREEN LIGHTS, a crackling look at political corruption in a Midwest city. Introduction by Alan K. Rode of the Film Noir Foundation.
Noir City continues with two never-on-DVD features. First, Alan Ladd and William Bendix are cargo pilots who seek revenge when their best buddy dies in CALCUTTA. Then, when a body is discovered in a burned-out car, the police have to ID the victim before they can hunt down the killer in BACKLASH. Introduction by Alan K. Rode of the Film Noir Foundation.
Our film noir series continues with two archival 35mm prints. In THE ACCUSED, spinsterish college professor Loretta Young finds herself in jeopardy after killing an amorous student in self-defense. Then a paroled jewel thief is torn between making a new start and getting revenge in THE HUNTED. Introduction by Alan K. Rode of the Film Noir Foundation.
