NOIR CITY: HOLLYWOOD - THE 22nd ANNUAL LOS ANGELES FESTIVAL OF FILM NOIR
Triple Feature!
M (1931) / M (1951) / EL VAMPIRO NEGRO
Presented by the American Cinematheque and the Film Noir Foundation

Noir City also pays a visit to the westside for an evening at the Aero Theatre curated by David Mamet, and to the Hollywood Legion Theater at Post 43 for a military noir double feature on March 10, of ACT OF VIOLENCE and SOMEWHERE IN THE NIGHT.

M (1931)
1931, Janus Films, 99 min, Germany, Dir: Fritz Lang

Peter Lorre is unforgettable as serial killer Hans Beckert, preying on children and whistling “In the Hall of the Mountain King” as he works. When the ensuing police crackdown proves bad for criminal business, all of Berlin’s underworld joins the manhunt for Beckert. This classic crime thriller was Fritz Lang’s first sound film, as well as the director’s personal favorite.


35 mm!

M (1951)
1951, Superior Pictures, 91 min, USA, Dir: Joseph Losey

The Hollywood version of Lang’s 1931 classic, about a child murderer simultaneously hunted by police and criminals, trades Berlin’s streets for those of L.A.’s Bunker Hill circa 1950. David Wayne gives a heart-rending performance as the killer, supported by a veritable character actor’s Hall of Fame: Howard Da Silva, Luther Adler, Steve Brodie, Raymond Burr, Norman Lloyd, Walter Burke and Jim Backus. Featuring a nerve-wracking and brilliantly filmed climax inside the famed Bradbury Building!


New DCP Restoration!

EL VAMPIRO NEGRO
THE BLACK VAMPIRE
1953, Argentine Sono Films, 90 min, Argentina, Dir: Román Viñoly

In this stunning reimagining of Lang’s classic M, Olga Zubarry (Argentina’s Marilyn Monroe), plays a chanteuse and single mother who is sole witness to a child killer stalking the streets of Buenos Aires. Will her daughter be the next victim? Featuring stunning cinematography by Aníbal González Paz. A major cinema discovery presented in a new DCP Restoration!
