NOIR CITY 9: CRASHOUT / LOOPHOLE
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!
(1955, The Filmakers [Republic/Paramount] 89 min. NOT ON DVD!)
Killers on a Furlough from Hell! The rarest of jailbreak films, and one of the best! William Bendix, Arthur Kennedy, Luther Adler, Gene Evans, Marshall Thompson, and William Talman (as a knife-chucking religious fanatic) crash out of the pen to unearth a stashed robbery payroll. Director Lewis Foster's frantic film is full of wild flourishes and stunningly brutal action. Featuring leggy Beverly Michaels, wholesome Gloria Talbott, and . . . Percy Helton! You'll only find this buried treasure at NOIR CITY!
(1954, Allied Artists [Warner Bros.] 80 min. NOT ON DVD!)
NOIR CITY is proud to resurrect one of the rarest films of the original noir era, a tidy tale of unjust persecution that plays like a B-film Les Miserables. An innocent bank clerk (Barry Sullivan), made the fall guy in an embezzlement scheme, is pursued to the brink of insanity by a scarily righteous lawman (merciless Charles McGraw, in a signature performance). Presented in a brand new 35-mm print funded by the Film Noir Foundation!
