CHICAGO DEADLINE
1949, Universal, 86 min, USA, Dir: Lewis Allen

Alan Ladd is a newspaper reporter obsessed with a young woman he finds dead in a cheap brothel. Connecting the dots all around Chicago, he cobbles together the sad history of a good girl (Donna Reed) gone wrong. Incredibly rare, not screened for decades before being resurrected by the Film Noir Foundation, the film makes excellent use of various Chicago locales (shot by the great John F. Seitz) to tell a tawdry, ink-stained variation of LAURA. Featuring a terrific supporting cast, including June Havoc, Irene Hervey, Arthur Kennedy and Berry Kroeger.


New 35mm Print! Never on DVD!

I WAS A SHOPLIFTER
1949, Universal, 74 min, USA, Dir: Charles Lamont

Cop Scott Brady agrees to go undercover to shadow shoplifter Mona Freeman, a judge’s daughter who has been coerced into working for a robbery ring run by the always entertaining Andrea King (SOUTHSIDE 1-1000). Her sinister sidekick is a looker named Pepe, played by 25-year-old Tony Curtis. Also keep your eyes peeled for noir tough guy Charles McGraw and a young Rock Hudson.
