NOIR CITY 9: HIGH WALL / STRANGER ON THE THIRD FLOOR
The price of admission gets you in for the double bill. At the insanely low price of $10! You'd be crazy to miss it!

7:30
HIGH WALL

(1947, MGM [Warner Bros.] 99 min.)
Quintessential postwar noir, resurrected in a new 35-mm print by the Film Noir Foundation! Brain-damaged vet Robert Taylor confesses to murdering his unfaithful wife and is sentenced to a sanitarium. His doctor (sexy Audrey Totter) gradually realizes he might not be guilty. Taylor gives his best performance ever in this neglected gem, which glistens with director Curtis Bernhardt's feverish rain-soaked noirscapes.

9:30
STRANGER ON THE THIRD FLOOR

(1940, RKO [Warner Bros.] 64 min.)
Considered by critical consensus the first American film noir! Peter Lorre is the Stranger, haunting a reporter whose testimony sentenced a possibly innocent man to death. Can the writer's girlfriend (Margaret Tallichet) uncover the truth in time? A revelatory burst of hallucinatory cinema, featuring a prolonged dream sequence that was the initial injection of noir expressionism into Hollywood's bloodstream. Archival print from the Library of Congress!
