Double Helix - The Rise of Film Noir and the L.A Crime Novelists Who Created the Genre
French cinephiles coined the term "Film Noir" in the 1950s, but the genre's inspiration reaches back much earlier - to 1920s/30s Prohibition and Depression-era Los Angeles and early crime writers like Paul Cain, Raymond Chandler, Horace McCoy, Dorothy B. Hughes, Leigh Brackett and James M. Cain - whose novel 'The Postman Always Rings Twice' became one of Hollywood's most notorious films. Denise Hamilton, noir novelist and editor of the Edgar-winning Los Angeles Noir short story anthologies, discusses the genesis of film noir and the cross-pollination between Hollywood and its noir bards.

Following is a screening of classic noir THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE. Join us as we continue a yearlong celebration of the Egyptian Theatre's 90th birthday with this Hollywood classic, which originally premiered here in 1946!
THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE
1946, Warner Bros., 113 min, USA, Dir: Tay Garnett

Lana Turner and John Garfield scorch the screen as a pair of murderous lovers, in director Tay Garnett’s much-imitated but never-equaled dark romance, one of the high points of 1940s film noir. Based on the novel by the great James M. Cain (the title famously refers to Cain’s own postman, who would ring twice when delivering rejection notices from publishers).


No passes accepted.
