Join Film Noir expert Foster Hirsch for a rare 35mm screening of this Noir classic starring Joan Crawford as a playwright in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with her murderous husband Jack Palance
With Mother's Day right around the corner, the Cinema is pleased to present the 1952 classic film noir, Sudden Fear, starring "The Biggest Mother of them All" - Joan Crawford (Mommie Dearest herself). Joan Crawford turns in one of the most emotionally charged performances of her career as a playwright who must use her plotting skills to save her own life, in this beautifully crafted film noir thriller. Jack Palance co-stars as her devious husband, and the always sultry Gloria Grahame is perfect as the other woman. Nominated for four Academy Awards, including a Best Actress nomination for Crawford, Sudden Fear is an unbeatable combination of lush melodrama and drop-dead suspense.
Hosted by Cinema Arts favorite, author and professor Foster Hirsch, the "Dean of Film Noir," along with a reception and book-signing of his classic work, "The Dark Side of the Screen: Film Noir." Sudden Fear is Joan Crawford at her worst which means, of course, at her very best!
