The Film Noir Foundation and The American Cinematheque once again combine forces for NOIR CITY: Hollywood, April 5-21, marking the 15th anniversary of the popular film noir festival at the Egyptian Theatre.
In addition to the FNF's most recent restorations, Try and Get Me! (1950), Repeat Performance (1949), and High Tide (1948), the three-week schedule includes many titles exclusive to this year's Los Angeles shows, including He Walked by Night, House by the River, The Case Against Brooklyn, City Across the River, Chicago Calling, Night Has 1000 Eyes, No Way Out, So Dark the Night, Appointment with a Shadow—and an ultra-rare 35mm screening of Guilty Bystander!
The redoubtable Alan K. Rode will be anchoring the lion's share of the hosting duties, with FNF prez Eddie Muller in for the first and final weekends. This year's festival concludes with a gala closing night party on Sunday, April 21 to commemorate the festival's 15th anniversary. They'll be booze, gambling, and dancing to Dean Mora's Modern Swing-tet—all that plus a mood-setting screening of
Jean Negulesco's Road House (1948) featuring the luscious Ida Lupino. Go here for details.
