Introduction by film noir experts Eddie Muller and Alan K. Rode.
1944, Universal, 87 min, USA, Dir: Robert Siodmak

Loyal and lovely Ella Raines is “one hep kitten” as she high-heels her way through the noir demimonde, searching for the one woman who can save her boss from a murder rap. Director Robert Siodmak and DP Woody Bredell wring every juicy bit of shadowy mystery from the novel by master of suspense Cornell Woolrich. Famous for Elisha Cook’s manic interlude as a wigged-out jazz drummer in orgiastic frenzy! A truly seminal noir classic!

1945, Universal, 81 min, USA, Dir: Roy William Neil

In this spellbinding adaptation of Woolrich’s thriller, noir favorite Dan Duryea gives a terrific performance as a pickled pianist whose estranged wife is murdered. When her husband is charged with the crime, nightclub canary June Vincent enlists drunken Dan’s help in a search for the real culprit. Broderick Crawford and Peter Lorre add muscle and menace to the typically warped Woolrich atmosphere, well rendered by director Roy William Neil.

New 35mm Print!

1949, Warner Bros., 73 min, USA, Dir: Ted Tetzlaff

This unnerving adaptation of Woolrich’s “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” is one of the most suspenseful films ever made. A child (Bobby Driscoll, who earned a special pint-sized Oscar for his performance) witnesses a murder but can’t get anyone to believe him - except the killers, memorably portrayed by Paul Stewart and Ruth Roman. Brilliantly directed by Ted Tetzlaff.

Screening formats: 35mm | No passes accepted. | New 35mm print of THE WINDOW funded by the Film Noir Foundation.
