Deadline: Noir City - 11th Annual Film Noir Festival


The streets and alleys keep getting darker, the tough guys tougher and the femmes more fatale. So to prepare you for dealing with the nocturnal netherworld out there (and hold you over till you can glimpse the light at the end of the tunnel), we’ll be screening more grand forays into the heart of darkness. We kick off with a Jane Greer double bill (the classic OUT OF THE PAST co-starring Robert Mitchum and Kirk Douglas, and the rare THE COMPANY SHE KEEPS), followed by Robert Siodmak’s impossibly hard-to-see FLY-BY-NIGHT, Fritz Lang’s WHILE THE CITY SLEEPS, an Anthony Mann double feature (the rare TWO O’CLOCK COURAGE and DESPERATE), a Newspaper Noir double bill of DEADLINE U.S.A. and ultra-rare CHICAGO DEADLINE, plus THE RACKET, THE ENFORCER, WALK SOFTLY STRANGER, Joseph Losey’s impossible-to-find CHANCE MEETING, NOCTURNE and scarce and forgotten B Noirs SMOOTH AS SILK and ROSES ARE RED! There’ll also be new prints of rarities like John Farrow’s Faustian fable ALIAS NICK BEAL, Joseph Losey’s sin-in-the-suburbs masterpiece THE PROWLER (newly restored by UCLA!), heist saga SIX BRIDGES TO CROSS, the delirious Commie-witchhunt classic WOMAN ON PIER 13 and the "Am-I-going-crazy?" gem THE OCTOBER MAN. Most of these are still not available on DVD! See stars like Humphrey Bogart, Ray Milland, Tony Curtis, Dana Andrews, Alan Ladd, Robert Mitchum, Kirk Douglas, Joseph Cotten, George Raft, Robert Ryan, Van Heflin, Ida Lupino, Jane Greer, Lizabeth Scott, Alida Valli, Evelyn Keyes and others deal with the deadly hand that Fate has dealt them. Hosted by co-programmers Eddie Muller, Alan K. Rode and Chris D. Also on the last day of the series, Sunday, April 19, there’ll be a special afternoon memorial tribute to actress Ann Savage with testimonial panels and screenings. ... ET2009.htm
