NOIR CITY Opening Night Gala! Farley Granger in Person! Strangers On a Train / They Live By Night
FARLEY GRANGER IN PERSON!
A Hollywood legend makes his first trip to San Francisco in 43 years to kick off this year's NOIR CITY festival!
STRANGERS ON A TRAIN A chance encounter spirals inexorably toward double-murder. Hitchcock's classic thriller is a finely-tuned engine of suspense, steaming through a spine-tingling story of fate, coincidence, and psychopathy--favorite themes of noir writer Patricia Highsmith, whose novel is adapted by the legendary Raymond Chandler. Starring Farley Granger, Robert Walker, Ruth Roman. Warner Bros. 1951, 101 minutes.
THEY LIVE BY NIGHT Nicholas Ray's stunning directorial debut is a deeply-felt, richly detailed adaptation of Edward Anderson's depression-era classic "Thieves Like Us", a crime story that's really about love struggling to survive in a cruel, unforgiving world. Farley Granger and Cathy O'Donnell are memorable as film noir's version of Romeo and Juliet. RKO (Warner Bros.), 1949. 92 min.
