Julie Adams (Six Bridges to Cross and Slaughter on Tenth Avenue) This makes me curious - which of these actors have made appearances at noir festivals?

Kirk Douglas, Olivia de Havilland, Doris Day, Dorothy Malone, Terry Moore, Juliette Greco, and Peggy Cummins, like Coleen Gray, have "noir resumes."
Then we get to actors with one or two major noir credits, or a number of smaller ones:
Harry Belafonte (Odds against Tomorrow)
Sean Connery (several Britnoirs)
Arlene Dahl (No Questions Asked)
Gloria DeHaven (Scene of the Crime)
Rita Gam (The Thief and Night People)
Steven Hill (A Lady Without Passport and Storm Fear)
Robert Horton (Code Two and The Man Is Armed)
Anne Jeffreys (Dillinger)
Glynis Johns (several Britnoirs)
Angela Lansbury (A Life at Stake and Please Murder Me!)
Cloris Leachman (Kiss Me Deadly)
Joan Leslie (Born to Be Bad)
June Lockhart (T-Men and Bury Me Dead)
Robert Loggia (The Garment Jungle and Cop Hater)
Betty Lynn (Behind the High Wall)
Maureen O'Hara (Malaga and Lisbon)
Gerald S. O'Loughlin (Cop Hater)
Sidney Poitier (Edge of the City)
Marion Ross (Lizzie)
William Schallert (several small roles)
Joe Turkel (numerous small roles)
Stuart Whitman (Hell Bound)
Jane Withers (Danger Street)
Joanne Woodward (A Kiss Before Dying and The Three Faces of Eve)
Who else? There are even fewer directors - I can only think of Britnoir directors Michael Anderson and Lewis Gilbert, both born in 1920.
Very few possibilities for live appearances at noir festivals anymore, and even fewer who would actually show up - you're never going to get Day or de Havilland.
