Ahh, yes, the Pacific Film Archive in the late 1970s. Over a period of a couple of years they had a large noir retrospective. Many of the prints were from the UCLA Film Archive in 35mm. I saw many great films there in pristine condition as I was in the midst of writing a book/master’s thesis. Many of the films were on a Friday night which meant (ad)venturing across the bridge in rush hour traffic. Also during that period, Tim Carey appeared for two nights, as well as nudie cutie maestro, Russ Meyer, grasping onto some precious arm candy in the luscious form of Kitten Natividad The PFA had some incredibly adventuresome programming. One night was totally dedicated to the films of director Arthur Ripley, who, in “Kings of the Bs” Edgar Ulmer referred to as a “sick man… mentally and physically”. First up was Voice in the Wind, followed by The Chase and Thunder Road, and as a close to midnight nite-cap – Siren of Atlantis (of which Ripley and John Brahm are listed as uncredited). This was my longest film marathon, until some years ago when Noir City showed a five French noirs from noon until almost midnight.
