NOIR CITY 8: RED LIGHT / WALK A CROOKED MILE
7:30
RED LIGHT

(1949, RKO [Warner Bros.]. 83 min. Scr. George Callahan. Dir. Roy Del Ruth)
Witness the resurrection of this incredibly rare, visually stunning "Biblical Noir." San Francisco truck company owner Johnny Torno (George Raft) seeks revenge on the killers of his priest brother, who left a clue to the culprit's identity in a missing bible. It's rife with religious symbolism, packed with indelible supporting players, and features sensational cinematography by Bert (Crime Wave) Glennon and a great score by Dimitri Tiomkin. It took a lot of digging to unearth this 35-millimeter print, so don't miss it! Not on DVD!

9:15
WALK A CROOKED MILE

(1948, Columbia. 91 min. Scr. George Bruce, Bertram Millhauser. Dir. Gordon Douglas)
When a security leak at an atomic energy plant threatens the safety of the free world, an FBI agent (Dennis O'Keefe) and a Scotland Yard inspector (Louis Hayward) track the spy ring to (where else?) Commie-infested San Francisco. Hint to the feds: Look for the big, shifty guy (Raymond Burr) with the Lenin look-alike goatee. This time capsule of escalating Cold War paranoia is rendered in the once-voguish "semidocumentary" style, providing terrific glimpses of 1948 San Francisco. Not on DVD!
