Double Feature!
SCARLET STREET / HANGMEN ALSO DIE!
Presented by the American Cinematheque in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut, Los Angeles
SCARLET STREET
1945, Kino Lorber, 103 min, USA, Dir: Fritz Lang

Fritz Lang’s classic film noir reunited his WOMAN IN THE WINDOW stars Edward G. Robinson, Joan Bennett and Dan Duryea in a reworking of Jean Renoir’s 1931 LA CHIENNE. Robinson’s middle-aged bookkeeper and amateur artist becomes hopelessly ensnared by the seductive Bennett and her lover-pimp, Duryea. The result is a psychological thriller, with Robinson’s increasing desperation contrasting with his predators’ unremitting ruthlessness. As with WOMAN IN THE WINDOW, Lang reveals the potential criminal in the average citizen.


HANGMEN ALSO DIE!
1943, Cohen Film, 134 min, USA, Dir: Fritz Lang

Bertolt Brecht co-wrote this story about a Czech man (Brian Donlevy) on the run after killing a brutal SS officer during the Nazi occupation. Frequent Brecht collaborator Hanns Eisler supplied the Oscar-nominated score, and cinematographer James Wong Howe gave this tense thriller plenty of noir atmosphere. With Gene Lockhart and Walter Brennan.
