NOIR CITY X: THIEVES' HIGHWAY / THE BREAKING POINT
The price of admission gets you in for the double bill.
(1949, 20th Century-Fox, 94 min.)
One of NOIR CITY's perennial favorites, presented in a pristine 35-mm print! WWII vet Richard Conte drives to San Francisco to sell a load of apples -- and get revenge on the crooked broker (Lee J. Cobb) who crippled his father. Shot on location in the city's once-thriving Embarcadero produce district, and featuring a terrific performance by Valentina Cortese. Screenplay by A. I. Bezzerides, from his novel Thieves' Market. Directed by Jules Dassin.
THE BREAKING POINT
(1950, WB/UCLA, 97 min.) Preserved 35-mm Print!
John Garfield gives perhaps his greatest performance as world-weary fishing boat skipper Harry Morgan in this superb and darkly noir adaptation of Hemingway's To Have and Have Not, one of the best, if unjustly neglected, films of the noir era. Preservation funding provided by Warner Bros. in association with The Film Foundation and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Screenplay by Ranald MacDougall, from the Hemingway novel. Directed by Michael Curtiz.
