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!


Archival 35mm Print! Never on DVD!

QUIET PLEASE, MURDER
1942, 20th Century Fox, 70 min, USA, Dir: John Francis Larkin

George Sanders is at his arrogant best as a master forger who steals a priceless Shakespeare folio while teaming up with femme fatale Gail Jackson. The scene of the crime: the Los Angeles Public Library! An example of the Fox B-unit at its best! Also starring Richard Denning.
