(1946, Warner Bros. 92 min.) Preserved 35-mm Print!
Noir strays into the supernatural realm in this fantastic tale of three strangers (Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, and Geraldine Fitzgerald) whose fates entwine with a mysterious Chinese idol and a winning lottery ticket. Deeply cynical, gloriously atmospheric. Never on DVD, almost lost in 35-mm, we proudly present this forgotten classic in a brand new FNF-funded preservation print!
