NOIR CITY 11: SMOOTH AS SILK / MARY RYAN, DETECTIVE / STRANGE IMPERSONATION / FLY BY NIGHT
Sunday, February 3: B-Noir Marathon!

The price of admission gets you in to all four afternoon shows.

12:30
SMOOTH AS SILK

(1946, Universal, 64 min.)
Actress Paula Marlowe (Virginia Grey) is thrilled when her attorney fiance (Kent Smith) helps an affluent playboy beat a manslaughter rap . . . since the defendant's uncle is bankrolling her new show. But when Miss Marlowe gets cozy with any man who furthers her career, her fiance has a final curtain planned for her.

1:50
MARY RYAN, DETECTIVE

(1949, Columbia [Sony], 68 min.)
NOIR CITY favorite Marsha Hunt is a scrappy (but always stylish) policewoman sent undercover to infiltrate a ring of jewel thieves and fences in this sly and fast-paced cop-caper. The first in a proposed series of adventures for the resourceful Mary Ryan, aborted when Hunt ran afoul of the red-baiters. Presented in a sparkling new 35mm print!

3:20
STRANGE IMPERSONATION

(1946, Republic [UCLA], 68 min.)
There's no point in trying to summarize the plot. More craziness is stuffed into these 68 minutes than would fit in a dozen features. Scientists in love. Sexy extortionists. Laboratory explosions. Plastic surgery. Confused identities. Hysteria. Sunglasses. B-movie insanity marshaled crisply and evocatively by director Anthony Mann.

4:45
FLY BY NIGHT

(1942, Paramount [Universal], 74 min.)
An encore screening of a berserkly fun B-movie. A man suspected of murder goes on the run with the sexy artist (Nancy Kelly) who's his only alibi. This lighthearted B-budget variation on Hitchcock's The 39 Steps shows Robert Siodmak as a fledgling master in his own right.
