NOIR CITY 9: BLIND ALLEY / SECRET BEYOND THE DOOR
The price of admission gets you in for the double bill (you can enter any of the matinee shows with your ticket). At the insanely low price of $10! You'd be crazy to miss it!

Matinee Show
$10 double feature shows start at: 1:00, 2:30
(BLIND ALLEY plays at 1:00, 4:30; SECRET BEYOND THE DOOR at 2:30)

1:00, 4:30
BLIND ALLEY

(1939, Columbia [Sony Repertory] 69 min. NOT ON DVD!)
An escaped convict (Chester Morris) and his moll (Ann Dvorak) hold a dinner party hostage while waiting for their boat to freedom. During the long night, a psychiatrist (Ralph Bellamy) persistently probes for the root of the crook's psychopathy -- with shattering results. Remade several times, this first version remains the freshest, thanks to Charles (Gilda) Vidor's canny direction, including startling dream sequences using startling camera techniques rare for the era.
 
2:30
SECRET BEYOND THE DOOR

(1948, Universal [Republic/Paramount] 99 min.  NOT ON DVD!)
It's a NOIR CITY tradition to show one incomprehensible film each year -- and this is it! Director Fritz Lang jumped (with abandon) onto the 1940s Freudian bandwagon with this wildly symbolic cinematic fright-ride. On a pre-wedding holiday, Joan Bennett meets the real man of her dreams (Michael Redgrave), who sweeps her off her feet and into a nightmarish honeymoon that's a cross between Rebecca and Bluebeard. Ridiculous but visually stunning, and lovingly restored by the UCLA Film and Television Archive.
