STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT
(1944, Republic [Paramount] 56 min. NOT ON DVD!)
Brand new 35-mm print restored by the UCLA Film & Television Archive! A World War II veteran comes to a California town to meet the woman who was his cherished wartime pen pal. The girl's peculiar mother claims she's away -- perhaps far, far away. This highly atmospheric, slightly daft "B" was the sixth low-budget wonder for the esteemed noir director Anthony Mann (T-Men, Raw Deal), featuring a jaw-dropping performance by the Austrian actress Helen Thimig.
(1944, MGM [Warner Bros.] 114 min.)
Ingrid Bergman's Oscar-winning performance dominates this Victorian-era thriller, one of the greatest suspense films ever made. After 10 years abroad, Paula Alquist (Bergman) returns with her groom (Charles Boyer) to the house where her aunt was murdered. The unsolved crime haunts her to the edge of madness. Nominated for all the major Oscars, including best picture, best actor, best supporting actress, and best screenplay, it remains a timeless touchstone of 1940s cinema.
