NOIR CITY 20: SO EVIL MY LOVE / SLEEP, MY LOVE
So Evil My Love (7:00)
Originally released July 21, 1948
Paramount [Universal]. 112 minutes
Screenplay by Ronald Millar and Leonard Spigelgass, from the novel For Her to See by
Marjorie Bowen
Produced by Hal Wallis
Directed by Lewis Allen
Devout missionary's widow Olivia Harwood (Ann Todd) falls under the spell of charming artist-rogue Mark Bellis (Ray Milland) on a steamship returning them to 1890s London from the West Indies. Sensing easy prey for his rakish charm, Bellis moves into Olivia's boardinghouse and soon has her in his thrall. Romantic obsession causes her to aid him in a nefarious and deadly scheme, leading to a shocking and bloody climax. Inspired by an actual never-solved murder, this is one of the great unheralded gothic-noir dramas of the 1940s. With Geraldine Fitzgerald.


Sleep, My Love (9:00)
Originally released March 16, 1948
Triangle Productions [United Artists]. 94 minutes
Screenplay by St. Clair McKelway and Leo Rosten, from the novel by Rosten
Produced by Ralph Cohn, Buddy Rogers, and Mary Pickford
Directed by Douglas Sirk
Alison Courtland (Claudette Colbert) awakens on a speeding train with no memory of how she got there. Reunited with her husband Richard (Don Ameche), he proposes hypnosis to uncover the root of his wife's mental instability. Overlooked in the noir canon because it was deemed a woman's picture, Sleep, My Love is one of Sirk's strongest 1940s pictures, deftly combining witty humor, creepy atmospherics, and genuine thrills all anchored by the sprightly chemistry of co-stars Colbert and Robert Cummings.


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