ARTHUR LYONS' FILM NOIR 2009 Palm Springs Film Festival


Recommended Posts

Just found out about this... sounds quite exciting. :D

 

 

 

The Palm Springs Cultural Center is proud to add Arthur Lyon?s festival to our ever growing special events and activities:

 

THURSDAY, MAY 28

7:30 PM Opening Night ? BIGGER THAN LIFE (1956) SPECIAL GUEST: BARBARA RUSH

A forgotten, noir-stained classic directed by the great Nicholas Ray.

 

FRIDAY, MAY 29

10:00 AM -ARMORED CAR ROBBERY (1950)

The ultimate ?B? caper flick. One of the best of the RKO noirs and not on DVD!

11:30 AM - A film short, THE GRAND INQUISITOR

SPECIAL GUESTS: Actress MARSHA HUNT, and Producer/Director, EDDIE MULLER

1:00 PM -THE BAD SEED (1956) SPECIAL GUEST: PATTY McCORMACK

This American Gothic classic remains one of most darkly shocking movies of all time.

4:00 PM ? WOMAN ON THE RUN (1950)

Filmed on location, this dark, delightful noir is the rarest of the rare; an exquisite transfer from an original 35mm print!

7:30 PM -THE GARMENT JUNGLE (1957) SPECIAL GUEST: ROBERT LOGGIA

Based on the true story of a New York journalist who was blinded for trying to expose the evils of garment industry bosses.

 

SATURDAY, MAY 30

10:00 AM -CRISSCROSS (1949)

Originally intended as a Los Angeles police procedural, this seminal noir was refined into a sensually stylized amour nou about the consequences of obsession.

1:00 PM -INSIDE JOB (1946) SPECIAL GUEST: ANN RUTHERFORD

An authentic rarity from the Universal film vault that continues the Arthur Lyons? tradition of screening newly discovered ?B? noir films! Rarest of the rare!

4:00 PM -DESERT FURY (1947) 96 min.

Lizabeth Scott in glorious Technicolor is truly something to behold, but she?s only one of the attractions. An unforgettable, over-the-top film that is not on DVD!

7:30 PM -RIFFRAFF (1947) SPECIAL GUEST: ANNE JEFFREYS

One of Arthur Lyons? favorite film noirs has been disinterred from the Warner Bros. vault! A rare gem, hardly ever screened, that is not on DVD!

 

SUNDAY, MAY 31

10:00 AM -BRUTE FORCE (1947)

Beautifully directed by the late Jules Dassin, this picture is a classic example of post World War II noir realism that cannot be forgotten!

1:00 PM -THE BREAKING POINT (1950) SPECIAL GUEST: SHERRY JACKSON

The best film version of Hemingway?s novel To Have and Have Not (yes, it tops the Bogart-Bacall classic).

4:00 PM ? FEMALE ON THE BEACH (1955) Joan Crawford unbound!

The most wildly perverse of Joan?s diva films from the 1950?s co-stars Jeff Chandler in his prime as a hunk of a beachcomber.

7:30 PM -THIEF (1981) the best neo-noir crime film of the last three decades!

Extraordinary realism, incredible dialogue with a powerhouse performance by James Caan that tops THE GODFATHER!

 

Hello Everyone! Here are the films and guest stars we have confirmed for the 2009 festival as of April 3rd, 2009. I am looking forward to seeing all of you on May 28, 2009 at the Camelot Theatres in Palm Springs, California.

Darkly,

Alan K. Rode

Are you flying down for the festival or does it conflict with the one in your own backyard at the Roxie?

 

If you go, I hope you'll post about it.

INSIDE JOB has been around for some time among hardcore collectors. A neat little noir with a screenplay by Tod Browning (his last screen effort). He reworked the plot from a 1930 Universal which he directed--OUTSIDE THE LAW, with Edward G. Robinson. Interesting to watch these two back to back.
