This weekend brings the 14th Annual Los Angeles Film Festival to a close with a bang.  Nine screenings will be presented over 3 days, with a couple of interviews & a book signing thrown in for good measure!

Friday May 4th brings a great Dashiel Hammett double in The Maltese Falcon (1931) / City Streets. This pairing continues with Thursday's pre-code, proto-noir theme, City Streets is a newly restored print courtesy of UCLA and is a must see for Gary Cooper fans.



Saturday offers up two separate events.  A special 3:00 matinee showing of The Postman Always Rings Twice featuring a discussion with award winning noir novelist Denise Hamilton.  The evening presents a Geraldine Fitzgerald double Three Strangers / Nobody Lives Forever.  Fitzgerald's son, Michael Lindsay-Hogg, will be discussing the films and signing his book Luck & Circumstance:  A Coming Of Age In Hollywood, New York & Beyond.  

Rounding out the weekend, Circumstantial Evidence / Sign Of The Ram has the Sunday matinee slot & Mary Ryan, Detective / Kid Glove Killer will finish off the evening.  Leading lady Marsha Hunt will be on hand to discuss her roles in these not-on-DVD rarities.
