NOIR CITY 7: WHILE THE CITY SLEEPS / SHAKEDOWN
CO-PRESENTED BY THE SAN FRANCISCO FILM SOCIETY

7:30
WHILE THE CITY SLEEPS

(1956, RKO, 100 min., scr. Casey Robinson, dir. Fritz Lang)
Ethics go out the window when a newspaper publisher offers a promotion to the staffer who catches the comic-book-crazed rapist-killer terrorizing the city. An all-star cast (Dana Andrews, Ida Lupino, Howard Duff, Rhonda Fleming, Vincent Price, and many more) brings to (boozy) life former San Francisco newspaperman Charles Einstein's novel The Bloody Spur. NOT ON DVD!

9:30
SHAKEDOWN

(1950, Universal, 80 min., scr. Martin Goldsmith, dir. Joseph Pevney)
Howard Duff is terrific as an unscrupulous "Weegee"-esque newspaper photographer in this slam-bang tabloid-style programmer, set entirely in 1950 San Francisco, shown in all its glory from skid row to Nob Hill. Also featured: Lawrence Tierney at his sneering, sinister best. A crowd favorite at the inaugural NOIR CITY festival, we're thrilled to bring it back for a return engagement. NOT ON DVD!
