NOIR CITY 20: NAKED CITY / CRY OF THE CITY
Naked City (7:00)
Originally released March 4, 1948
Universal International. 96 minutes
Screenplay by Albert Maltz and Malvin Wald
Produced by Mark Hellinger
Directed by Jules Dassin
This landmark crime movie, producer Mark Hellinger's hardboiled tribute to his beloved Big Apple, peels away all the stylistic melodramatics of noir to present Hollywood's first true policier. Scrupulously researched writing by Malvin Wald and vivid location photography by William Daniels (an Oscar® winner) combined to make this one of the most influential Hollywood films of all time, the template for thousands of cop shows to come. With Barry Fitzgerald, Howard Duff, Don Taylor, Dorothy Hart, and a very scary Ted de Corsia.


Cry of the City (9:00)
Originally released September 29, 1948
20th Century-Fox. 95 minutes
Screenplay by Richard Murphy and Ben Hecht, based on The Chair for Martin Rome by Henry Edward Helseth
Produced by Sol. C. Siegel
Directed by Robert Siodmak
Perhaps the most perfectly realized, thematically and stylistically, of all Siodmak's noir films.  Victor Mature is the lawman and Richard Conte the fugitive crook he pursues across Manhattan with tragic results. Shot entirely on location, Siodmak skips the semi-documentary vogue of the day, creating instead an Expressionistic urban landscape ideally suited to this mythic mid-20th-century tale of good and evil. Co-starring Shelley Winters, Debra Paget, Fred Clark, and a scary Hope Emerson in her startling screen debut.


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

CURRENT GRAND LAKE THEATRE HEALTH PROTOCOL:  Wearing an antiviral mask is optional but recommended in high-density situations such as ticket/concession/restroom lines and when an auditorium is highly occupied.
