NOIR CITY Film Restoration Tribute -- City That Never Sleeps / Hollow Triumph
FILM RESTORATION TRIBUTE
Please join us for a double bill of rescued classics, as The Film Noir Foundation honors a pair of organizations essential to the recovery and restoration of America's film legacy, the UCLA Film & Television Archive and Martin Scorsese's Film Foundation.
CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS -- RARITY! Writer Steve Fisher's "B" masterpiece is a sordid tale of one night in the urban jungle, narrated by the city (Chicago) itself! Director John Auer and a cast of noir stalwarts brings to life the story of a tempted cop (Gig Young) tangled in a web of corruption and vice. With Marie Windsor, William Talman, Mala Powers, Edward Arnold. Republic, 1953. 90 min. Special thanks to Martin Scorsese for loan of his personal 35mm print!
HOLLOW TRIUMPH A fugitive crook finds the perfect hiding place in the shoes of a psychiatrist who is his identical twin... almost. Produced by star Paul Heinreid, this is a sublime example of noir fatalism, lensed by the great John Alton. Directed by Steve Sekely. With Joan Bennett. Eagle-Lion, 1948. 83 min. Restored 35mm print courtesy UCLA Film & Television Archive.
