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.
Three days. Ten Films. February 28-March 2.
