A DOUBLE LIFE
(1947, Universal. 104 min.)
In this extraordinary film, Ronald Colman delivers an Oscar-winning performance as Anthony John, a Broadway actor who discovers madness in his Method. Tackling his greatest role as "Othello," John can longer distinguish his art from his life and begins acting out the character's murderous jealousy. George Cukor brilliantly directs the acerbic script by Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin. An undisputed classic, presented in an archival print courtesy the UCLA Film and Television Archive.
AMONG THE LIVING
(1941, Paramount [Universal] 67 min. NOT ON DVD!)
Albert Dekker stars as identical twins, one a brain-damaged psychopath who stirs up a Gothic whirlwind of insanity, family skeletons, and murder in a small town paralyzed by fear. Stuart Heisler directs Lester Cole's baroque script with fabulously lurid intensity. Costarring a lushly nubile Susan Hayward, venerable Harry Carey, and pre-tragedy Frances Farmer. This rarely screened horror-noir hybrid is one of the most requested films in NOIR CITY history, finally presented in a glorious 35-mm print!
