NOIR CITY The Man Who Cheated Himself / Thieves' Highway
The San Francisco Film Society co-presents the "re-premiere" of the locally-made noir which the Film Noir Foundation has been searching for since the first NOIR CITY festival in 2003! Be on-hand for the resurrection!

THE MAN WHO CHEATED HIMSELF -- ULTRA RARITY! Unscreened for more than 50 years! Lee J. Cobb is a sap cop used by a Sea Cliff society dame (Jane Wyatt!) to cover up her husband's murder. A nifty thriller from underrated director Felix Feist, shot entirely on location in San Francisco. Not to be missed! 20th Century Fox, 1951. 81 min. Print courtesy of UCLA Film & Television Archive.

9:15 THIEVES' HIGHWAY An encore from the first NOIR CITY festival, this time in a pristine 35mm print! Richard Conte drives to San Francisco to sell a load of apples--and get revenge on the produce broker (Lee J. Cobb again!) who crippled his father. A great film, shot on-location in S.F.'s once thriving produce district. Directed by Jules Dassin, featuring the marvelous Valentina Cortese. 20th Century-Fox, 1949. 94 min.
