NOIR CITY 7: ALIAS NICK BEAL / NIGHT EDITOR
ALIAS NICK BEAL
(1949, Paramount, 93 min., scr. Jonathan Latimer, dir. John Farrow)
This Faustian tale of soul corruption has campaigning politician Thomas Mitchell making a pact with Lucifer (Ray Milland), while succumbing to delectable devil-doll Audrey Totter. Latimer's fabulous, fabulist screenplay is rendered by director Farrow (The Big Clock, Where Danger Lives) in high noir style. A true rarity, brought back by Universal in a brand-new 35-mm print exclusively for NOIR CITY! NOT ON DVD!
(1946, Columbia, 68 min., scr. Hal Smith, dir. Henry Levin)
An encore presentation of one of NOIR CITY's most popular rediscoveries. A cop (William Gargan) and his married socialite lover (long and leggy Janis Carter) witness a brutal murder while necking in Lover's Lane. She gets totally turned on. Of course he's assigned to investigate the murder. They are soooooo doomed. One of the raciest and raunchiest B noirs of the 1940s. NOT ON DVD!
