NOIR CITY Last Man Standing: Richard Widmark -- ROADHOUSE / NIGHT AND THE CITY
(d. Jean Negulesco, 20th Century-Fox, 1948, 95 min.) NOT ON DVD!
A star-powered face-off between two film noir icons: sassy Ida Lupino and psychotic Richard Widmark. Sparks fly when Ida takes a job crooning in Widmark's rural roadhouse, but when she throws him over for his boyhood chum (Cornel Wilde), the joint really starts jumping.
1:00, 5:00, 9:10
NIGHT AND THE CITY
(d. Jules Dassin, 20th Century-Fox, 1950, 96 min.)
We close out NOIR CITY 6 with a stunning print of the most baroque and bleak film noir of them all. The greatness of this film--besides Richard Widmark's devastating portrayal of the maniacal and pathetic Harry Fabian--is its stubborn refusal to allow even the tiniest ray of light into Harry's headlong descent into hell. Featuring Gene Tierney, Googie Withers, Herbert Lom, Francis X. Sullivan . . . and perhaps the ultimate film noir finale.
