Phoenix

directed by Christian Petzold in German starring Nina Hoss, Ronald Zehrfeld, Nina Kunzendorf

In postwar Berlin, a disfigured concentration-camp survivor (Hoss), unrecognizable after facial reconstruction surgery, searches ravaged postwar Berlin for the husband (Zehrfeld) who might have betrayed her to the Nazis.

“Superbly crafted, emotionally resonant. A rich Hitchcockian tale of mistaken identity. The finale is an absolute knockout.” —Variety

<cite>The Guilty</cite>

The Guilty

directed by John Reinhardt in English starring Bonita Granville, Don Castle, Regis Toomey

New FNF 35mm Restoration!
Two war buddies (Don Castle and Wally Cassel) fall for twin sisters (both played by Bonita Granville). When one sister turns up dead, the boys are dogged by a suspicious police inspector (Regis Toomey). Working with only three sets and virtually no budget, director Reinhardt and DP Henry Sharp evoke the dreadful, dead-of-night ambiance that was the domain of prolific noir scribe Cornell Woolrich.

<cite>Digging for Fire</cite>

Digging for Fire

directed by Joe Swanberg in English starring Jake Johnson, Rosemarie DeWitt, Sam Rockwell, Brie Larson, Anna Kendrick, Mike Birbiglia

The discovery of a bone and a gun sends a husband and wife on separate adventures over the course of a weekend.

“Joe Swanberg's starriest picture is a lovely slice of everything and nothing disguised as a murder mystery.” —Variety

Next screening, 4:15pm

The Chase

directed by Arthur Ripley in English starring Robert Cummings, Michèle Morgan, Steve Cochran

35mm Restoration!
Script by Philip Yordan, from the novel The Black Path of Fear by Cornell Woolrich.
In this hallucinatory Woolrich adaptation Robert Cummings plays a drifter hired as a chauffeur by two Florida crooks (Steve Cochran and Peter Lorre). He falls for Cochran’s dishy wife (Michelle Morgan) with dire, unpredictable results. As close to Lynch-like as movies got in the 1940s. 35mm restored print courtesy of the UCLA Film & Television Archive. Restoration funding provided by The Film Foundation and the Franco-American Cultural Fund.

No Abras Nunca esa Puerta / Si Muero Antes di Despertar

directed by Carlos Hugo Christensen in Spanish

FNF 35mm Preservations!
Be here for an incredibly rare screening of this stunning Argentine anthology film, adapted from three short stories by noir master Cornell Woolrich. With brilliant camerawork by Pablo Trabernero, this is breathtaking noir every bit as good as the Hollywood variety. Originally conceived by its makers as a single film, the titles were released separately. The FNF is presenting them as a unified whole, in newly struck prints with—for the first time ever—English subtitles.

<cite>Ivy</cite>

Tickets

Next screening, Sun 30 Aug, 2:30pm

Ivy

directed by Sam Wood in English starring Joan Fontaine, Patric Knowles, Herbert Marshall

35mm Archival Print!
Joan Fontaine obliterated her innocent screen persona with this portrayal of Ivy Lexton, an Edwardian femme fatale who beneath the bows and bustle is one of the most calculating bitches in the history of film noir. Sam Wood’s stately direction is abetted by the bold production design of William Cameron Menzies and the dark shadows of Russell Metty’s exceptional cinematography.

<cite>Hangover Square</cite>

Tickets

Next screening, Sun 30 Aug, 5:00pm

Hangover Square

directed by John Brahm in English starring Laird Cregar, Linda Darnell, George Sanders

Laird Cregar, one of the most memorable film actors of the forties, makes his final screen appearance (he died at 29 years of age) in this stark and haunting tale of a Victorian era composer driven by the sounds in his head to create masterful concertos — and beautiful corpses. See Joseph LaShelle’s stunning cinematography on the big screen and hear Bernard Herrmann’s thrilling “Concerto Macabre” in all its baroque glory.

<cite>Ladies in Retirement</cite>

Tickets

Next screening, Sun 30 Aug, 7:00pm

Ladies in Retirement

directed by Charles Vidor in English starring Ida Lupino, Louis Hayward, Evelyn Keyes

New 35mm Restoration!
Ida Lupino is indelible as a timid housekeeper who becomes enmeshed in murder and madness. Ida tends to an aged actress (Isobel Elsom) and persuades her to take in her two eccentric sisters (Elsa Lanchester and Edith Barrett). All bets are off when a mysterious stranger (future Lupino spouse Louis Hayward) arrives to stir the pot further. There is nothing retiring about this suspenseful Victorian noir, too long unjustly overlooked and underappreciated.

<cite>The Suspect</cite>

Tickets

Next screening, Sun 30 Aug, 9:15pm

The Suspect

directed by Robert Siodmak in English starring Charles Laughton, Ella Raines, Dean Harens

Timid tobacconist Philip Marshall (Charles Laughton) develops a friendship with a poor young woman (Ella Raines), igniting his wife’s shrewish jealousy. Despite the Edwardian era decorum, The Suspect is a classic noir—one of Siodmak’s best—featuring Charles Laughton’s memorable portrait of a repressed and lonely man who will do anything to protect the unexpected joy he’s found too late in his life. Costarring Stanley Ridges and Rosalind Ivins.

<cite>Ride the Pink Horse</cite>

Tickets

Next screening, Mon 31 Aug, 4:30pm

Ride the Pink Horse

directed by Robert Montgomery in English starring Robert Montgomery, Thomas Gomez, Wanda Hendrix

35mm Archival Print!
A surly vet (director/actor Robert Montgomery) ventures into a New Mexico resort town during fiesta to settle a score with a vacationing mobster. A strange, oddly paced film that plays as much like a Japanese samaurai movie as film noir. With Thomas Gomez, Wanda Hendrix, Andrea King, from the novel by Dorothy B. Hughes.

<cite>The Fallen Sparrow</cite>

Tickets

Next screening, Mon 31 Aug, 7:00pm

The Fallen Sparrow

directed by Richard Wallace in English starring John Garfield, Maureen O'Hara, Walter Slezak

This convoluted but compelling story, from the novel by Dorothy B. Hughes, is told in creepy Val Lewton style as John Garfield’s Spanish Civil War veteran is slowly driven mad by stateside fascists. Is porcelain-gorgeous Maureen O’Hara his only ally… or his enemy? Stunning photography by RKO’s in-house noir master, Nicholas Musuraca. With Walter Slezak, Patricia Morison, Martha O’Driscoll.

<cite>House of Bamboo</cite>

Tickets

Next screening, Tue 1 Sep, 4:30pm

House of Bamboo

directed by Samuel Fuller in English starring Robert Ryan, Robert Stack, Shirley Yamaguchi

A military investigator (Robert Stack) infiltrates a gang of American ex-GIs (led by menacing and sexually ambiguous Robert Ryan) muscling in on the Japan’s Yakuza underworld. Fuller’s re-do of Fox’s The Street With No Name is a visual spectacle, with stunning Technicolor and Cinemascope giving extra dimension to the director’s singularly no-holds-barred style.

<cite>The Racket</cite>

Tickets

Next screening, Tue 1 Sep, 7:00pm

The Racket

directed by John Cromwell in English starring Robert Mitchum, Lizabeth Scott, Robert Ryan

A pair of film noir heavyweights—Robert Mitchum and Robert Ryan—square off in this elemental cops and robbers saga, a postwar film noir update of the silent 1929 gangland drama by Bartlett Cormack. Noir favorite Lizabeth Scott is along for the bumpy ride, caught between the cops, crooks and corrupt politicians vying for control of the city. Sam Fuller wrote the first draft, deemed to incendiary for studio boss Howard Hughes, and Nicholas Ray (among others) directed added scenes to pump up the violence.

<cite>Crime of Passion</cite>

Tickets

Next screening, Wed 2 Sep, 5:00pm

Crime of Passion

directed by Gerd Oswald in English starring Barbara Stanwyck, Sterling Hayden, Raymond Burr

San Francisco newspaper columnist Kathy Ferguson trades her career for marriage to an L.A. cop. With nowhere to channel her talent and ambition, Kathy quickly becomes a dangerous woman. Jo Eisenger’s script is a subversive excoriation of women’s circumscribed roles in Eisenhower-era America, tailor-made for Stanwyck, who pulls out all the stops in her final, riveting performance in a film noir. Costarring noir stalwarts Sterling Hayden and Raymond Burr.

<cite>Witness To Murder</cite>

Tickets

Next screening, Wed 2 Sep, 7:00pm

Witness To Murder

directed by Roy Rowland in English starring Barbara Stanwyck, George Sanders, Gary Merrill

This distaff version of Rear Window (released before the Hitchcock classic) stars Barbara Stanwyck as an independent career woman who watches neighbor George Sanders strangle a victim in his swanky digs. It’s the word of a single woman against that of a renowned author (and closet Nazi)—so guess who the LAPD believes?? Featuring the chiaroscuro camerawork of noir’s master shadow-meister, John Alton.

Tickets

Next screening, Thu 3 Sep, 5:00pm

Criss Cross

directed by Robert Siodmak in English starring Burt Lancaster, Yvonne De Carlo, Dan Duryea

When he died in 1947, producer Mark Hellinger had just begun pre-production on this crime-infected love story. Thanks to the inspired vision of director Siodmak, Criss Cross now reigns as perhaps the most darkly poetic rendering of amour fou in all film noir. Burt Lancaster and Dan Duryea plot a daring heist, while vying for the affections of sensual Yvonne DeCarlo. As good as it gets in the classic film noir era!

<cite>The Underworld Story</cite>

Tickets

Next screening, Thu 3 Sep, 7:00pm

The Underworld Story

directed by Cy Endfield in English starring Dan Duryea, Herbert Marshall, Gale Storm

New 35mm FNF Preservation!
Another unjustly neglected noir by director Cy Enfield (Try and Get Me!), in which the always entertaining Dan Duryea plays a cynical reporter who digs dangerously close to a corrupt publisher’s family secrets. Craig Rice’s terrific story features a powerful subplot about the ingrained racism in the American upper class. With dazzling cinematography by the great Stanley Cortez (Night of the Hunter). New 35mm print courtesy of the Film Noir Foundation collection at the UCLA Film & Television Archive.
