THE GREAT GATSBY (1949)
1949, Universal, 91 min, USA, Dir: Elliott Nugent

Resurrected at last is this Golden Age version of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel, unseen for decades. Thanks to our friends at Universal Pictures, Alan Ladd’s noir-tinged take on the timeless tale of shady success and lost love can be seen again, in a brand-new print made exclusively for Noir City! Screenplay by Cyril Hume and Richard Maibaum, based on the novel and a play by Owen Davis. Directed by Elliott Nugent. An intriguing take on an American classic. NOT ON DVD


THIS GUN FOR HIRE
1942, Universal, 81 min, USA, Dir: Frank Tuttle

"He's dynamite with a gun or a girl." With a screenplay by W.R. Burnett (THE ASPHALT JUNGLE) and Albert Maltz (NAKED CITY) based on the novel by Graham Greene, here is one of the genuinely seminal films in Hollywood’s original noir movement! This taut thriller made stars of Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake, who’d become Paramount’s biggest box-office duo of the 1940s. Ladd plays lone-wolf assassin Philip Raven, who enlists Lake’s aid in freeing himself from a frame-up by a secret cadre of “fifth columnists.” John Seitz’s camerawork presages the shadowy dread he’d bring to sunny Los Angeles in DOUBLE INDEMNITY. Lake sports sensational outfits created by the legendary Edith Head. Costarring Robert Preston and the fabulous Laird Cregar, in one of his earliest performances. A must-see!
