NOIR CITY John Garfield Tribute -- Nobody Lives Forever / The Breaking Point
JOHN GARFIELD TRIBUTE
The San Francisco Jewish Film Festival co-presents a tribute to an actor who brought a new level of street-smart realism to the movies, making an indelible impression on the world of film noir.
NOBODY LIVES FOREVER
BRAND NEW 35MM PRINT COURTESY OF THE FILM NOIR FOUNDATION! Garfield is a shady ex-GI hooked up in a plot to bilk a war widow (gorgeous Geraldine Fitzgerald). When he falls for her, the gang wants them both dead. Director Jean Negulesco ladels atmospherics onto W. R. Burnett's witty screenplay. Great support from Walter Brennan, George Coulouris, Faye Emerson, and George Tobias. Warner Bros., 1946. 100 min.
THE BREAKING POINT -- RARITY! Thanks to the recent efforts of directors Curtis Hanson and Alexander Payne, this long-lost masterpiece has been recovered! Garfield gives perhaps his best performance as world-weary fishing boat skipper Harry Morgan in this darkly noir adaptation of Hemingway's "To Have and Have Not." Directed by Michael Curtiz. With Patricia Neal, Phyllis Thaxter, Wallace Ford, and Juano Hernandez. Warner Bros., 1950. 97 min.
