Where Film Noir Lives...Too!

Noir City 12th Returns To Siff...February 13th-February 17th 2013

Full lineup announced and passes now on sale! The Czar of Noir, Eddie Muller, returns to Seattle and explodes the long-held belief that noir is an exclusively American phenomenon. Join us as Noir City goes international by presenting unearthed gems from Argentina, Britain, Germany, Norway, Spain, Japan, and (of course) France -- plus two newly restored Hollywood classics.

This year's Noir City festival features 16 classic films, most in newly restored or archival 35mm prints! Opening night walk the red carpet for a double shot of WWII intrigue, then spend the next four days on a journey around the globe showcasing how the cinematic movement known as "Noir" had a style, sexiness, and cynicism that crossed all international borders.

Noir City Opening Night: Journey Into Fear and The Third Man

 

Celebrate the launch of Noir City 2014 by walking the red carpet, then settle in for a double shot of WWII intrigue as Joseph Cotton and Orson Welles star in Journey Into Fear and The Third Man. Introduced by the Czar of Noir, Eddie Muller.

NOIR CITY 12 OFFICIAL SCREENING SCHEDULE

The Third Man (Selznick, 1949). Three Sheet (41" X 80").
Carol Reed's The Third Man is an absolutely brilliant slice of film noir set in the post-war occupied city of Vienna. It is a film in which a revelation leads novelist Holly Martins (Joseph Cotten) into a downward spiral of intrigue and deceit, that climaxes with an exciting chase through the city's sewers. Paper from this film is highly sought after, as many consider it to be one of the greatest films ever made. The poster has a crease running the width of the poster in the top border, minor crossfold separations, and two small tears in the right border. Very Fine. Sold for: $1,434.00

Journey into Fear (RKO, 1942). Three Sheet (41" X 80").
It was the final film by Orson Welles and his Mercury Players for RKO and Welles went all-out telling this story of a Naval engineer who is pursued by Nazi saboteurs and agents. The posters for this title have always been scarce and difficult to come by and this is the first time that Heritage has had the three sheet. The poster had some chips on the borders that just extended into the edge of the background. There were also some tape lifts on the verso which have made the paper a bit thinner and there has been quite a bit of retouch to the fold lines. The poser was linen-backed a long time ago and there are several places where it is starting to crack and lift off of the old linen. Fine- on Linen. Sold for: $956.00

TOO LATE FOR TEARS RESTORED!

For many years, all 35mm prints of Too Late for Tears (1949) 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. 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. The five-year effort to restore "one of the best film noir movies no one has seen," culminates in the film's return to the big screen. The restored 35mm print will premiere on Saturday, January 25, 2014, during the opening weekend of NOIR CITY 12. More screenings of the restored noir will follow during the year at the NOIR CITY satellite festivals and on the international film festival circuit.

All programs February 13–16 introduced by our guest Eddie Muller, the incomparable impresario of Noir City.
