NOIR CITY Dames Tough as Nails -- WOMAN IN HIDING / JEOPARDY
WOMAN IN HIDING
(d. Michael Gordon, Universal, 1950, 92 min.)
NOIR CITY favorite Ida Lupino gives another superb performance as a successful career woman who marries Mr. Wrong (Steven McNally) and finds herself desperately trying to evade his plans to dispose of her and take over the business. A long-missing (and underrated) thriller, presented in a gloriously pristine print from Universal Pictures!
(d. John Sturges, MGM, 1953, 69 min.)
Thats right: 69 minutes. And it's as simple and compelling as suspense films get: A vacationing man (Barry Sullivan) is trapped beneath a pier in Mexico, the tide steadily rising. His wife (Barbara Stanwyck) desperately seeks help. It comes in the surly form of a fugitive (Ralph Meeker), who expects his payment up front, and in something more than cash, if he's going to play hero. Stanwyck and Meeker are electrifying as comrades and combatants.
