Event

NOIR CITY 16: 1947: THE UNSUSPECTED / HIGH TIDE
Wednesday, January 31

The price of admission gets you into the double bill.

7:30
THE UNSUSPECTED

(1947, Warner Bros. 103 min.)

Scr. Ranald MacDougall, from the novel by Charlotte Armstrong. Dir. Michael Curtiz

When the secretary of a popular radio personality (Claude Rains) commits suicide, the commentator uses his considerable storytelling gifts to suggest Murder! and flush the culprit from a rat's nest of suspects. This clever and complex murder mystery--chock full of terrific character actors (including a sexy and savage Audrey Totter)--gets the deluxe noir treatment from director Curtiz and ace cameraman Woody (The Killers) Bredell. Presented by Alan K. Rode, author of Michael Curtiz: A Life in Film, with a book signing on the mezzanine!

9:35
HIGH TIDE

(1947, Monogram [UCLA/FNF]. 74 min.)

Scr. Robert Presnell, Sr., from a story by Raoul Whitfield. Dir. John Reinhardt

A crusading newspaper editor (motor-mouthed Lee Tracy) gets more than he bargained for when he hires a private dick (tight-lipped Don Castle) to protect him from riled-up gangsters. Featuring one of the greatest flashback set-ups ever, this is as witty and moody as any "B" noir of the era...finally back in circulation thanks to a glorious 35mm restoration funded by the Film Noir Foundation in 2012.
Preservation funded by the Film Noir Foundation and The Packard Humanities Institute. Special thanks to UCLA Film & Television Archive, the British Film Institute, Nigel Algar, and Katrina Stokes.
