Jan 8/9: NIGHTMARE ALLEY (1947)
Jan 15/16: THE MOB
Jan 22/23: OVER-EXPOSED
Jan 29/30: QUAI DES ORFEVRES
Heavens to Betsy, another two chances for folks to see Ty, Joan, Coleen and Helen (and Ian Keith, awfully good in the "David Straithairn part") after its screening in early December.
OVEREXPOSED, Cleo Moore sans Hugo Haas, gives Stan Carlisle a run for his money in the "naked ambition" department, and really should've played back-to-back with NIGHTMARE ALLEY for an object lesson in the world of noir "from A to B." It will interesting to see if Eddie does his literary research for this one.
QUAI DES ORFEVRES keeps Eddie solidly in Rialto Picture's conception of French noir; it's a fine film, but Clouzot got so much more edgy starting with MANON and there is just so much more that so many are seemingly choosing to ignore with respect to the folks who not only coined the term "film noir" but invented it first back in 1932.
When he programs films one at a time, Eddie's a champ.
*Or will it be ARGYLE socks for some lucky winner in the SIFF Egyptian audience??
