Event

NOIR CITY 12: SINGAPORE / MACAO / THE SHANGHAI GESTURE
Sunday, February 2: The Far East, Hollywood Style

The price of admission gets you into the full triple bill.

1:00, 7:00
SINGAPORE

(1947, United States, 79 min.)

Scr. Seton I. Miller and Robert Thoeren, from a story by Thoeren. Dir. John Brahm

A smuggler (Fred MacMurray) returns to postwar Singapore in search of the fortune in pearls he lost -- along with his beloved Linda -- in the bombing raids. When Linda (Ava Gardner) reappears (with amnesia, of course), nefarious intrigue runs rampant. Ceiling fans abound.

3:00, 8:45
MACAO

(1952, United States, 81 min.)

Scr. Bernard Schoenfeld and Stanley Rubin. Dir. Josef von Sternberg, Nicholas Ray (uncred.)

A fabulous cast, topped by sexy costars Robert Mitchum and Jane Russell, keep things moving at a brisk enough pace you may not notice that the plot is missing. At least there's a gambling house, hot jewels, slimy gangsters, and Gloria Grahame! Absurd, but endlessly amusing.

5:00
THE SHANGHAI GESTURE

(1942, United States, 95 min.)

Scr. Jules Furthman and Geza Herczeg, from the play by John Colton. Dir. Josef von Sternberg

John Colton's notorious play, in which young Poppy (luminous Gene Tierney) falls into a life of drug addiction and prostitution in Mother Gin Sling's Shanghai casino, gets sanitized by Hollywood, although Josef von Sternberg compensates with his patented shimmering sensuality. With Victor Mature.
