Event

NOIR CITY XMAS 2015
Take a Break from the Holiday Season with NOIR CITY XMAS
The Film Noir Foundation presents its sixth annual holiday show at San Francisco's majestic Castro Theatre! In addition to a seasonally themed double bill of vintage noir-stained films, host Eddie Muller will be revealing the complete schedule (and hot new poster!) for the eagerly anticipated NOIR CITY 14 festival, coming to the Castro January 22-31, 2016!

In addition to new FNF merchandise, NOIR CITY 14 Passports (all-access festival passes) will be available for sale at NOIR CITY Xmas!

The night's features will be:

THE RECKLESS MOMENT (1949, Columbia [;Sony];), 82 min.) 7:30 pm
California homemaker Joan Bennett longs to separate her headstrong daughter Geraldine Brooks from the influences of bad apple boyfriend Shepperd Strudwick. But events spiral out of control, and soon mother and daughter are covering their tracks from an accidental homicide. Enter shady character James Mason -- tall, dark, and handsome, and in possession of evidence that would incriminate Bennett. Max Ophuls' criminally underrated noir masterpiece weaves this weird, it-could-never-be romance with a twisty, tension-fueled plot.


Playing with

KISS OF DEATH (1947, 20th Century-Fox, 98 min.) 9:30 pm
Victor Mature plays a hump trying to shake the crooked life who gets enlisted by the cops as a stoolie. He fingers Richard Widmark for a job that's been nagging the law, but the prosecution bungles the case and the wacko walks. Mature sends his family away, knowing that he'll have to confront the vengeful Widmark if he ever wants to be free of him. Kiss of Death is actually one of the earliest psycho-stalker movies -- all of its suspense is generated by wondering when and where Widmark (in his debut performance as Tommy Udo!) will reappear, making the audience eager for whatever fresh, twisted tricks he has up his sleeve.

ALSO:

HOLIDAY GIVING AT NOIR CITY XMAS
You've got a chance to prove that it's not such a bitter little world after all at this year's NOIR CITY Xmas. We will have collection bins for both the San Francisco Firefighters Toy Program and the SF-Marin Food Bank at the event, and we encourage everyone to give what they can. The San Francisco Firefighters are looking for toys for kids -- infants through 12 years old. Toys must be unwrapped. The SF-Marin Food Bank needs the following: peanut butter, low-sugar cereal, whole-grain rice, pasta, oats, low-sodium soups and stews, tuna and other canned meats, and canned fruits and vegetables. Please no glass, opened items, perishables, or items past their "use before" date.
