Show Business Noir Double Feature!
Presented in collaboration with the Film Noir Foundation
Introduction by Eddie Muller and Alan K. Rode of the Film Noir Foundation and Paramount archivist Andrea Kalas.
New Digital Restoration!

1950, Paramount, 110 min, USA, Dir: Billy Wilder

"I’m ready for my close-up, Mr. DeMille!" Director Billy Wilder created one of his most enduring masterpieces in this dark, glittering, poison-pen letter to all things Hollywood, told in flashback by screenwriter Joe Gillis (William Holden), whose final job is playing paid companion to egocentric, aging silent-film goddess Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson). With Erich von Stroheim. Academy Award Winner for Best Screenplay (Wilder, Charles Brackett and D.M. Marshman Jr.) and Score (Franz Waxman). The original Schwab’s drugstore figures prominently in the film, as do Paramount Studios and the still-standing Alto Nido apartments.

Archival Print!

1954, 20th Century Fox, 81 min, USA, Dir: Hugo Haas

When megalomaniacal film director Walter Darman (Hugo Haas) fires no-talent actress Sherry Stewart (Cleo Moore) from his latest artistic opus, the shamed sexpot schemes revenge. She drugs Darman, convinces him they’ve shared a night of scandalous debauchery and begins the blackmail. But this is a director with experience at rewriting other people’s scripts… NOT ON DVD!

Screening formats: DCP (SUNSET BOULEVARD) and 35mm (THE OTHER WOMAN)
