Program begins with The Three Stooges short “Pardon My Backfire” (1953, 16 min. Dir. Jules White).

1953, Sony Repertory, 70 min, USA, Dir: Lew Landers

A long-lost noir in fully restored 3-D and glorious black-and-white! Pinched by the cops after pulling off a big heist, crook Steve Rawley (Edmond O’Brien) undergoes an experimental operation to eliminate his criminal urges. It also makes him forget where he hid the loot ... much to the consternation of his old gang and his itchy-fingered girlfriend (Audrey Totter). Fortunately, clues pop up (literally!) in Rawley’s dreams, and soon he’s leading the crooks and cops on a careening hunt for the money, culminating in a spectacular chase through Santa Monica’s creepy old Pacific Ocean Park! NOT ON DVD!


1953, 20th Century Fox, 83 min, USA, Dir: Roy Ward Baker

It’s the essential film noir plot: Illicit lovers hatch a “foolproof” scheme to bump off the woman’s rich, domineering husband. But what if the husband, left for dead in the scorching desert, doesn’t die? What if that husband, crippled but hell-bent on revenge, is played by the indomitable Robert Ryan? Watch as unmerciful nature takes on unbreakable man in amazing 3-D! Toss in titantic, Titian-tressed Rhonda Fleming as the deceitful, voluptuous vixen, and you’ve got perhaps the best 3-D movie of the original Hollywood stereo-optic craze!
