But that isn't stopping the Coos Bay public library from trotting film noir out there for its residents.
For some time now, the third Sunday of every month has been reserved for screenings of classic film noir. So far it's all American (all-American?) but when I go on the lam for part of 2020 I just might remedy that situation...
The noir screenings at Coos Bay are pretty imaginative--not basic stuff by any means...
October 20--THE BREAKING POINT
December 15--FORCE OF EVIL
January 19--MY NAME IS JULIA ROSS
February 15--HE RAN ALL THE WAY
March 16--YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE
...though one gets the sense someone up there is a John Garfield fan.
And--hey! FORCE OF EVIL. If a certain someone won't ("can't") show it in San Francisco, it's great to know you can flee north over the Golden Gate Bridge this Sunday morning and cruise into Coos Bay just in time to see the film that needs to be on rep screens across America right now (more than ever, in fact).
So, when I go on the lam I will blow into town as a mysterious stranger and inveigle them into playing Robert Hossein films. That might just upset the noir applecart up in Coos Bay, n'est-ce pas?
