1949, Warner Bros., 93 min, Dir: Anthony Mann

Naive postman Joe Norson (Farley Granger) takes a dangerous shortcut to securing a nest egg for his pregnant wife (Cathy O’Donnell) - stealing thirty grand from the office of a shady shyster. When Joe tries to give himself up he only gets in deeper, careening for his life through the treacherous streets of Manhattan, pursued by cops and crooks at every deadly turn. Boehm’s script is a much more noir version of Naked City, and Anthony Mann pulls out all the stops, directing this headlong thriller with incredible punch, abetted by Joe Ruttenberg’s stunning cinematography (with an opening sequence shot from a blimp over Manhattan). A top-tier noir, featuring favorites Jean Hagen, Paul Kelly, James Craig and Charles McGraw.

35mm Archival Print! Not on DVD!

1942, Universal, 68 min, Dir: Anthony Mann

In one of his first B assignments, Anthony Mann already displays the visual panache that would make him one of Hollywood’s premier directors. Macdonald Carey plays Timothy Kane, aka “Dr. Broadway,” a savvy New York sawbones who knows where all the bodies are buried. With the help of feisty receptionist Connie (Jean Phillips), Kane navigates through a tide of colorful crooks on the Great White Way to bestow an inheritance on the daughter of a felon he sent upriver. Tremendous noir atmospherics courtesy of great German cinematographer Theodor Sparkuhl.

Screening format: 35mm
