NOIR CITY 8: SLATTERY'S HURRICANE / PICKUP ON SOUTH STREET
7:30
SLATTERY'S HURRICANE

(1949, 20th Century-Fox. 87 min. Scr. Richard Murphy, Herman Wouk, A. I. Bezzerides (uncredited). Dir. Andre de Toth)
The rarest film of Richard Widmark's early rise to stardom is an uncommonly adult story of infidelity and drug smuggling. Will Slattery (Widmark) is a cynical fighter pilot facing possible court-martial, flying suspicious cargo around the Caribbean. Disasters, both human and natural, result when an old flame (Linda Darnell) comes between Slattery and his loyal gal (Veronica Lake), who has secrets of her own. It's a unique film featuring fresh, innovative direction by the great Andre de Toth. Not on DVD!

9:30
PICKUP ON SOUTH STREET

(1953, 20th Century-Fox. 80 min. Scr. Dwight Taylor. Dir. Samuel Fuller)
Richard Widmark delivers his signature performance in this exceptionally fast and hardboiled tale of a New York pickpocket caught between the commies and the feds, playing both ends against the middle for his own gain. It is perhaps Fuller's most perfectly realized film, featuring Oscar-nominated support from Thelma Ritter and a memorable turn by Jean Peters as a blowsy, brazen B girl. Fuller, a former New York crime reporter, magically turns Fox back lots and studio sets into a vivid depiction of his beloved Big Apple.
