This Friday, April 20th was the kick off for the 14th annual Los Angeles Film Noir Festival @ the Egyptian Theatre. Opening night's Alad Ladd double played to a full house and for good reason!  The newly restored print of the long lost Great Gatsby was a delight as was seeing the classic This Gun For Hire.  Night number two , Naked Alibi / Suddenly, was given an interesting analysis by Charles Reece in his most recent posting, click here to check it out.  Sunday's triple, featuring Cornell Woolrich based films, topped off one of the best weekends of film that I've had in many years.  There was a bonus showing of Suddenly on Sunday for those who had been disappointed with the lousy digital projection the night before.  




Week number 2 starts off with a Arlene Dahl pairing in Scene Of The Crime / Reign Of TerrorNorman Lloyd will be on hand to discuss his part in Scene of the Crime.  A Mid 50's take on the trials and tribulations of life on the Manhattan docks is offered on Saturday. Actress Julie Adams will be on hand to discuss her adventures in making Slaughter on 10th Ave.  Sunday offers a gangster double featuring Dick Powell & George Raft, Wednesday brings us a great "corrupt cop" double and Thursday packs a pre-code punch with a couple of "proto-noir" gems.
