NOIR CITY Ben Hecht Tribute - Crime Without Passion / The Scoundrel
Chicago newspaperman Ben Hecht was a towering figure in 20th century American letters. With partner Charles MacArthur -- and often without him -- Hecht penned innumerable classics, from "The Front Page" to "Scarface" to "Notorious" to "Kiss of Death." NOIR CITY celebrates Hecht's startling 1930s work as an independent writer/producer/director of innovative proto-noir films.

7:30 CRIME WITHOUT PASSION  -- RARITY! You won't believe your eyes - a film so far ahead of its time it's mind-boggling. Claude Rains plays an arrogant attorney who shoots his mistress then defends himself against the charges. Co-directed and photographed by the great Lee Garmes. Paramount, 1934. 70 min. Print courtesy UCLA Film & Television Archive.

9:00 THE SCOUNDREL -- RARITY! The 1936 Oscar winner for Best Original Story is a noir fantasy about a self-absorbed publisher (Noel Coward) challenged to find a single person on earth who cares about him. One of the more bizarre films of the 1930s. Co-directed by Hecht and Charles MacArthur. Paramount, 1935. 76 min. Restored print courtesy UCLA Film & Television Archive.
