NOIR CITY 20: KEY LARGO / THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI
Key Largo (7:00)
Originally released July 16, 1948
Warner Bros. 101 minutes
Screenplay by Richard Brooks and John Huston, based on the play by Maxwell Anderson
Produced by Jerry Wald
Directed by John Huston
The final pairing of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall is a spine-tingling tale of a WWII veteran (Bogart) running up against a gangster (Edward G. Robinson) who is holding the staff and guests of a coastal hotel hostage as a hurricane bears down on them. Bacall plays the daughter of proprietor Lionel Barrymore, and noirs grandest dame, Claire Trevor, is Gaye Dawn, a broken-down chanteuse who is Eddie G's booze-sodden moll. Trevor won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar® for her memorable performance. We kick off our 20th anniversary with the film's first-ever screening at NOIR CITY!  
 

The Lady from Shanghai (9:15)
Originally released April 14, 1948
Columbia Pictures [Sony Pictures Classics]. 86 minutes
Screenplay by Orson Welles, based on the novel If I Die Before I Wake by Sherwood King
Produced and directed by Orson Welles
Welles' dazzling and dizzying pulp poetry takes the classic femme fatale tale to globe-spanning lengths and hallucinatory heights. Hard-luck sailor Michael O'Hara (Welles) tumbles into the snare of gorgeous and mysterious Elsa Bannister (Hayworth) only to find himself caught in the murderous conspiracy of her viperous cohorts. Welles improvised a brilliant, chaotic 155-minute noir epic, which studio editor Viola Lawrence pruned to 86 feverish minutes. What remained is one of the most startlingly inventive crime films ever released by a Hollywood studio. Featuring Everett Sloane, Glenn Anders, and Ted de Corsia.


All FNF proceeds from festival ticket sales aid the foundation's mission of rescuing and restoring noir films.
