The price of admission gets you into the double bill.
I WALK ALONE
(1948, Paramount. 97 min.)
Scr. Charles Schnee, from a play by Theodore Reeves. Dir. Byron Haskin
A true rarity! Never on home video or DVD! Burt Lancaster plays a Prohibition-era bootlegger who gets out of prison to find that his former partner (Kirk Douglas) has gone legitimate, is enjoying the spoils of their criminal enterprise, and has no intention of sharing. Can torch singer Lizabeth Scott douse the flames of retribution? A seminal noir, long thought lost, revived in a new digital restoration courtesy of Paramount Pictures.
(1948, RKO [Warner Bros.] 62 min.)
Scr. Fred Niblo Jr. and Harry Essex, story by Robert Altman and George W. George. Dir. Richard Fleischer
Hollywood's biggest badass is back! Legendary lawbreaker Lawrence Tierney is ironically cast as an insubordinate lawman who gets framed off the force and goes undercover to expose corruption and murder in the meat-packing industry! Perky Priscilla Lane provides spunky support. This early Richard Fleischer programmer moves at a breakneck pace with the story co-credited to...yes, that Robert Altman!
