NOIR CITY 9: THE TWO MRS. CARROLLS / MY NAME IS JULIA ROSS
The price of admission gets you in for the double bill. At the insanely low price of $10! You'd be crazy to miss it!
THE TWO MRS. CARROLLS
(1947, Warner Bros. 99 min. NOT ON DVD!)
Humphrey Bogart gives one of his strongest -- if barely known -- performances as a mentally disturbed painter whose second wife (sensational Barbara Stanwyck) gradually realizes her husband's preferred medium is . . . murder! Released at the height of public fascination with the Bogart-Bacall romance, the film flopped, and rarely has it been revived in recent decades. Here's a chance to see Bogart at his most deliciously villainous, opposite the greatest actress in Hollywood history.
MY NAME IS JULIA ROSS
(1945, Columbia [Sony Repertory] 65 min. NOT ON DVD!)
Unemployed Julia (Nina Foch) gets a dream job working for a wealthy widower, only to awaken in a nightmare -- living with a schizo husband and a scheming mother-in-law (George Macready and Dame May Whitty), neither of whom she's ever seen before! Director Joseph H. (Gun Crazy) Lewis made his mark in Hollywood with this incredibly tense and well-acted mystery thriller, one of the best B films of the era.
