Czar of Noir Continues Siege of TCM

FNF prez Eddie Muller, "The Czar of Noir," will be hosting the "Friday Night Spotlight" on Turner Classic Movies one last time this month, presenting four movies highlighting the work of two seminal noir writers, Raymond Chandler and Cornell Woolrich. Muller, who was TCM host Robert Osborne's guest this past January for "A Night in Noir City," was asked by the network to solo-host a monthly installment of its new Spotlight feature, in which a guest host both programs and presents thematically linked films. The segments were recorded in March at TCM headquarters in Atlanta—and it should be no surprise that Muller tilled his usual noir terrain, aiming his spotlight at noir writers. In addition to programming and hosting the Spotlights, Muller also penned an essay on each author for TCM's website. Check out the schedule on TCM.

You Must Remember This

Author, film historian and FNF board member Alan K. Rode will host the Los Angeles Conservancy's Last Remaining Seats presentation of Michael Curtiz' Casablanca (1942) on June 29th at the historic Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills. In this, one of the most adored, referenced and quoted Hollywood love stories, Humphrey Bogart gave a career-making performance as Rick, a cynical and emotionally detached nightclub owner. Rick's Place serves as a destination for refugees from war torn Europe desperate to leave Casablanca for greener pastures and those who can sell them the means to leave. Rick finds himself in the midst of one such struggle, when his lost love Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman) appears at the club with her freedom fighter husband—on the run from the Nazis and desperate for travel papers. Rode's currently writing a biography of the director, Michael Curtiz: A Man for All Movies, so expect some interesting insights on Curtiz and the film. Program notes and showtime information here.

NOIR CITY: Chicago

The latest edition of NOIR CITY: Chicago arrives at the Music Box Theatre August 23–29, offering another astounding lineup of classic films noir—including the Windy City premieres of the FNF's latest preservation projects: Try and Get Me! (1950), Repeat Performance (1949), and High Tide (1948). As always, NOIR CITY features both celebrated classics and wonderful rarities, some freshly rescued from extinction and screened in glorious new film prints, others shown for the first time in gorgeous digital restorations. We're proud to again team up with the Music Box to present the week long noir extravaganza celebrating its 5th anniversary in Chi. FNF president Eddie Muller will host the opening weekend. Film historians (and FNF board members) Alan K. Rode and Foster Hirsch will present films during the rest of the festival. Our news page will post a link to the complete program once it's available.

Czech Noir

The first film noir festival in the Czech Republic, NOIR FILM Kokořín, will be held from August 21–25, 2013 at the Kokořín Castle, approximately 60 km north of Prague. They'll be screening hard-boiled adaptations of noir novels, including John Huston's influential The Maltese Falcon (1941), women's noirs including Otto Preminger's sophisticated Laura (1944), as well as saluting Marilyn Monroe with a screening of John Huston's definitive caper film The Asphalt Jungle (1950). The festival will also screen Dark Passage, Double Indemnity, Kiss Me Deadly, and The Big Combo. Most intriguingly, the program includes three Czechoslovakian noirs: Guard 13 (1946), The Fifth Horseman Is Fear (1964) and Smart Philip (2003). Visit the festival's (Czech or English language) website for more d...

Joan Evans Interview
with Foster Hirsch

Following the screening of Edge of Doom at the 2013 Arthur Lyons Film Noir Festival, actress Joan Evans spoke with film historian Foster Hirsch about viewing the film with a new perspective after many years. She talked about working with co-star Farley Granger (who disliked the film) and producer Samuel Goldwyn, and offered her opinions about both men. Ms. Evans recalled the changes made to this "Catholic" noir to avoid censorship by the Legion of Decency. She also discussed her later career, post-Goldwyn, and revealed why she retired in 1961. Watch the video here.
