"Too Late For Tears..."

Roy Huggins’ witty and twisted script follows the trail of a ruthless housewife determined to keep an ill-gotten satchel of cash, even if it means murder.

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.

When film noir stalwarts Lizabeth Scott and dangerous Dan Duryea collide—sparks are sure to fly! Completely restored by the Film Noir Foundation and UCLA Television Archive after five years of painstaking effort, this is a can’t miss chance to see one of the great undiscovered noirs of the classic era.

Once again, I agree with you...I will be happy with any copy that is better than the current public domain film.

I can certainly understand this appraisal Dee Dee.  It seems to indicate they did all they can with the print.  Still if it is significantly better than the public domain copies they were previously circulating, then it is still reason to celebrate.

Sam, below is a participant at Noir City 12th opinion about the film "Too Late For Tears," after viewing the restore print.

By the way, sometimes my Green light is on even when I log-Off...I have to report that problem.

"Because of the absence of strong sources, it's not as pristine a restoration as The Prowler or Cry Danger -- it was rescued from a decidedly "dirty" print, but it was cleaned up as beautifully as possible and it is far superior to the public domain versions we've all seen and loathed over the years. With some digital tricks (the opening credits had to be recreated, as Eddie Muller explained to a few of us afterward), at long last one feels like they're seeing the entire film as it was intended to be viewed. There are no longer any jarring cuts or skips, and the detail in the location settings and studio sets jump off the screen now..."

Hi ! Sam Juliano...

Oh ! yes, I'm  so happy that they are still working to save and restore 35mm films. I'm not sure what's going to happen in the future when theatre switch over to screening digitally.

Now, with that being said, I truly hope that this film is released on DVD in order for me to watch a pristine print and add it to my film noir collection... too !

By the way, Congratulation ! on reaching that 300 million mile-stone... too !

...and Thanks, for stopping by... as usual !

Wow, this is quite the event here Dee Dee!!!  The work that has been done to restore TOO LATE FOR TEARS is another feather in the cap of the Film Foundation.  I would love to see this print myself!

Presented as part of the first annual Noir City Austin festival in cooperation with the Film Noir Foundation.

The true story of a shocking 1934 kidnapping and murder in San Jose provided the inspiration for one of the most compelling—and unjustly neglected—masterpieces of noir. Ex-GI Howard Tyler (Frank Lovejoy), struggling to support his family, meets flashy hoodlum Jerry Slocum (Lloyd Bridges)—who eases gullible Howard into a lucrative life of crime. One of the last films made in the U.S. by blacklisted writer-director Cy Endfield before he relocated to England, TRY AND GET ME! (originally released as THE SOUND OF FURY) has been recently restored by the Film Noir Foundation.

John Payne and Dan Duryea are high-toned grifters preying on an affluent war widow. Both are tangled up with saucy dame Shelley Winters, who’s more trouble than a loaded .38. You’re going to get whiplash trying to keep up with the wisecracks in Bowers’ riotously sarcastic script, in which the one-liners fly faster than speeding bullets. A real rarity—Never on DVD!

Following a Colorado prison riot and mass escape, six desperate men remain at large. Led by the wounded and vicious Vance Morgan Duff (William Bendix), the men hide out in a cave until the dragnet moves on. Vance agrees to give five of the convicts a share of the $180,000 he stashed from a bank robbery if they promise not to abandon him. The murderous group embarks on a deadly odyssey in pursuit of the cash—eluding the manhunt, terrorizing innocent citizens, and double-crossing each other to the bitter end. CRASHOUT is a wickedly entertaining bust-out for its formidable cast, as unheralded director Foster packs the piece with astoundingly creative and shockingly brutal set-pieces.

Noir City: CRASHOUT

Presented as part of the first annual Noir City Austin festival in cooperation with the Film Noir Foundation.

One of the most wicked and witty revenge yarns of the original film noir era. Bill Bowers’ witty dialogue propels this terrific tale of a framed man (Dick Powell) returning to his L.A. haunts for revenge on those who set him up. Co-starring ravishing Rhonda Fleming and Richard Erdman, the best wisecracking second-banana of all time. We’re thrilled to screen this terrific film—Parrish’s debut as a director—in a restoration courtesy of the Film Noir Foundation and the UCLA Film and Television Archive. Not on DVD!

Noir City: CRY DANGER
