This Friday, April 20th is the kick off for the 14th annual Los Angeles Film Noir Festival @ the Egyptian Theatre! The schedule lists 15 double and triple features running through May 6th and guests include actors Norman Lloyd, Julie Adams and Marsha Hunt as well as the late Geraldine Fitzgerald's son Michael Lindsay-Hogg.



Opening week highlights include the elusive Alan Ladd version of The Great Gatsby, Gloria Grahame's seldom seen Naked Alibi paired with controversial Sinatra crime pic Suddenly, a Cornell Woolrich penned triple Phantom Lady / Black Angel / The Window and a prison break pairing Caged / Big House USA.  If you are unable to make it out to the theater for any of these screenings, our film noir DVD section has many of these titles as well as tons of other great noir gems.

Film Noir Festival Week 2

Took my lovelies out to the Dick Powell double feature on Friday.  We caught an atmospheric Italian dinner across the way at Miceli's before hand (always an oasis in the madness that is modern TMZ Hollywood) then headed over to the classic movie house.  Master Sylvian used his trick cig that he had purchased at Hollywood Toys & Costume to have a smoke break between the hardboiled flicks and made a couple of innocents gasp-all in all a wonderful night! We'll be there this coming  Friday  as well, a special treat being billed as  "Hostage Noir Double Feature".  In the past, many of the movies listed as "not on DVD" come out soon after the festival is over, so if you miss something keep and out for it in our Film Noir section up in the Mez.
