Patricia Ward-KellyPatricia Ward Kelly Interviewed by Alan K. Rode
Biographer and film historian Patricia Ward Kelly, widow of screen immortal Gene Kelly, joined producer/host Alan K Rode for a post-screening discussion of Christmas Holiday (1944) at the 2013 Arthur Lyons Film Noir Festival in Palm Springs.
Mrs. Kelly's eloquence and wit concerning the most unexpected role of Gene Kelly's career progressed into a lively conversation about her husband's life and her role as trustee of Gene Kelly's legacy. Watch the video here.
The FNF will co-present David Ondrícek's In the Shadow at the 33rd San Francisco Jewish Film Festival, running July 25-August 2. In this gripping contemporary noir set in 1953 Prague, a hardworking police detective suspects that a run-of-the-mill jewelry store heist may be part of a secret state-controlled plot to discredit the city's Jewish community. His persistence sets him on a dangerous collision course with his superiors and with an entire Soviet-influenced security network, possibly imperiling his career, his family and his life. The film screens August 3 at the Jewish Community Center in San Francisco, August 4 at the California Theatre in Berkley, and August 5 at the Cinearts in Palo Alto. For full festival information and to buy tickets visit the SFJFF website.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (yes, the presenters of the Golden Globe Awards) has granted the Film Noir Foundation $10,000.00 toward funding of the restoration of "one of the best film noir movie no one has seen," Too Late for Tears. Based on a novel by future television titan Roy Huggins, and featuring Huggins' own brilliant screenplay, the film is a neglected masterpiece of noir, awaiting rediscovery.
A suburban housewife's decision to keep a satchel of money accidentally tossed into her convertible results in mayhem and murder. For many years, all 35mm prints of the film were believed lost, but through the determined efforts of the Film Noir Foundation, sufficient original material has been discovered to enable a restoration, performed under the auspices of the UCLA Film & Television Archive. The six-month preservation project will culminate in the film being returned to the big screen in 2014, at NOIR CITY screenings and the international film festival circuit.
