Week Two of The Film Noir Festival at The Egyptian Theatre

Posted by Mr. Chadwick, April 8, 2010 11:10am | Post a Comment


So it seems that the Film Noir Foundation folks have another great week of programming lined up for us! It starts off on Friday with an intense double featuring one of Robert Mitchum's rarely screened gems The Locket along with The Bodyguard, which happens to be Robert Altman's first big writing credit. Saturday brings a Broderick Crawford mid 50's double feature that includes a spectacular Gloria Grahame performance in yet another film based on Emile Zola's La Bete Humaine. Sunday brings a "crooked world" double that includes Mickey Rooney's great Drive A Crooked Road, a quick paced film written by Blake Edwards and featuring some great old arcade footage. I will definitely make it to this one, as it's paired with something I've never seen-- Walk A Crooked Mile, described as an anti-commie / atomic scare flick featuring Raymond Burr and Dennis O'Keefe set in San Francisco. Wednesday brings a Neo-Noir featuring an all mannequin cast entitled Eve's Necklace. Thursday rounds out the week with a Gothic Noir double from the early 40's featuring Albert Dekker, Susan Hayward, Francis Farmer & Elisha Cook Jr!
