NOIR CITY: FILM NOIR FESTIVAL 2017
Double Feature!
THE BIG HEAT / WICKED WOMAN
Presented by the American Cinematheque and Film Noir Foundation
Introduction by Eddie Muller of the Film Noir Foundation.
THE BIG HEAT
1953, Sony Repertory, 90 min, USA, Dir: Fritz Lang

One of director Fritz Lang’s best Hollywood films tells the tale of a virtuous cop (Glenn Ford) out for revenge against the gangster who killed his wife. Assisting him in his one-man crusade against the city’s corrupt power base is a kooky, sexy dame (Gloria Grahame, in perhaps her signature role) who’s out for a little vengeance of her own. Featuring an all-time thuggish turn by a young Lee Marvin. As compact and compelling as any crime film ever made.


35 mm!

WICKED WOMAN
1953, Park Circus/MGM, 77 min, USA, Dir: Russell Rouse

In this racy little B-movie, scarlet woman Beverly Michaels (PICKUP) cons saloon owner Richard Egan into bilking his boozy wife out of her dough, then toys with the affections of slavering devotee Percy Helton (as you’ve never seen him before). She plans on dumping both and leaving a dust trail to Mexico. Michaels was definitely director Rouse’s kind of woman: They married after making this picture - an extra twist to this juicy noir. Featuring a title song that’s a cult favorite!


Screening format: DCP (THE BIG HEAT), 35mm (WICKED WOMAN)
