NOIR CITY 7: WICKED AS THEY COME / SLIGHTLY SCARLET
7:00
WICKED AS THEY COME

(1956, Columbia, 94 min., scr.-dir. Ken Hughes)
"What she wanted out of life . . . she got out of men!" Arlene Dahl is a sizzling sensation as Kathleen Allen, a woman who learns early that sex is how she'll get ahead in the world. Her high heels leave puncture wounds in a trail of saps stretching from America to England. British writer-director Hughes adapts Bill Ballinger's novel Portrait in Smoke, and the result lives up to its retitling. NOT ON DVD!

Arlene Dahl appears in person between films for an onstage interview with Eddie Muller!

9:30
SLIGHTLY SCARLET

(1956, RKO, 99 min., dir. Allan Dwan)
Arlene Dahl steals the show as sexy kleptomaniac Dorothy Lyons (opposite titian-tressed sister Rhonda Fleming) in this eye-popping adaptation of James M. Cain's Love's Lovely Counterfeit. John Payne plays the slick operator dallying with both dames and Ted de Corsia is a great sleazy crime boss. But the real star is camera virtuoso John Alton, who translates noir into to lurid, saturated color, as if those tawdry 1950s paperback jackets had come to life.
