NOIR CITY Tribute to John Alton -- The Big Combo / The Spiritualist
Tribute to Noir Visionary John Alton!

THE BIG COMBO (1955, Allied Artists, 89 min.) John Alton's incredible camerawork highlights the story of a gangster (Richard Conte) and cop (Cornell Wilde) battling it out for the devotion of a woman who wants neither of them (Jean Wallace). Dir. Joseph H. Lewis. Scr. Philip Yordan. With Earl Holliman and Lee Van Cleef. See it like you've never seen it before, in a restored 35mm print courtesy of the Film Foundation and UCLA Film & Television Archive.

THE SPIRITUALIST (1948, Eagle-Lion, 78 min.) Alton's finest B&W cinematography elevates to exhilarating heights this entertaining story of a phony psychic (Terhan Bey) preying on a wealthy widow (Lynn Bari) and her impressionable daughter (Cathy O'Donnell). One of the most satisfying "B" films of the era. Dir. Bernard Vorhaus.  Story by Crane Wilbur, Scr. Muriel Bolton & Ian Hunter. New 35mm print courtesy of Sony Classics.
