Portland Explores Its Dangerous Desires...

Darkness is coming to Portland, Oregon this fall. The Northwest Film Center will present Dangerous Desires, a retrospective of film noir, from September 14 through 30. The series will present a combination of rarely screened noirs provided by the FNF, such as Jean Negulesco's Three Strangers (1946), costarring Geraldine Fitzgerald, Sidney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre along with fan favorites like Stuart Heisler's The Glass Key (1942) and George Marshall's The Blue Dahlia (1946), both featuring legendary onscreen couple Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake.

The Czar Of Noir Eddie Muller will introduce the FNF-funded...restoration of Joseph Losey's The Prowler (1951) on opening night, and then stick around to present the FNF's preservation of Jack Bernhard's The Hunted(1948) on Saturday.

PSU Professor of Film Studies, Dr. Mark Berrettini, and other guests will also be in attendance to introduce selected films which include Nobody Lives Forever, Pitfall, The Window, Caught, High Wall, 99 River Street, Loophole, and Naked Alibi. The Northwest Film Center will post the full schedule online August 24, 2012...

Dangerous Desires: Film Noir Classics

The Northwest Film Center presents a grand retrospective of vintage 35mm noir films! Featuring rarely seen gems beautifully restored and preserved in all their celluloid glory by the Film Noir Foundation, along with traditional noir favorites, this series promises a cinematically sinister foray into the dark heart of post-war America.

The usual suspects are all here: crooked cops, thugs for hire, double-crossing dames, and more—come take a walk with us on the seedy side of the street. Author, film historian, and

president of the Film Noir Foundation Eddie Muller will be in attendance opening weekend to discuss the enduring legacy of film noir.

Here Goes The Line-Up Of Un-Usual Suspects...lol

Tks,

A music video compilation tribute to the noir genre which lasted from 1940-1958, using Radiohead's 'The National Anthem' and Frank Sinatra's New York, New York. This is still a rough cut, but it entertains me. (Exceptions to time period are The Naked Kiss and LA Confidential

THE PROWLER

DIRECTOR: JOSEPH LOSEY
US, 1951

GUEST PRESENTER—A tawdry tale of obsession and murder, Joseph Losey’s THE PROWLER tells the story of a crooked LAPD rookie (Van Heflin) who decides to win over the lonely housewife he’s been stalking by knocking off her husband.

An intensely paranoid tailspin of a romance that skewers middle-class decorum, THE PROWLER is a haunting portrait of the American dream wrapped in a tabloid melodrama. Featuring assistant direction by Robert Aldrich (KISS ME DEADLY) and written by the blacklisted Dalton Trumbo, this 35mm print, restored by the Film Noir Foundation, is not to be missed. (92 mins.)

With Eddie Muller in attendance.
