Six Noirs Programmed by Eddie Muller and James Ellroy
Noir City Denver 2018
Noir City makes its debut at the Alamo Drafthouse Littleton, March 23-25, 2018 with six classic film noirs, co-programmed and co-hosted by FNF founder and president Eddie Muller and celebrated crime fiction author and FNF Advisory Board member James Ellroy. One of Ellroy's favorite noirs kicks of the festival, Joseph Losey's THE PROWLER (1951), 35mm restoration funded by the FNF in conjunction with the Stanford Theatre Foundation and with an able assist from Ellroy. Don Siegel's 1959 San Francisco set noir THE LINEUP featuring an unforgettable performance by Eli Wallach rounds out the night. Saturday's programming beings with Ken Hughes' Brit Noir, WICKED AS THEY COME (1956) with Arlene Dahl. The racket-noir 711 OCEAN DRIVE, starring Edmond O'Brien and directed by Joseph Newman follows. On the final day of the festival, Kirk Douglas squares off against Burt Lancaster and Lizabeth Scott in Byron Haskins' I WALKE ALONE (1947). Noir City Denver closes with HE WALKED BY NIGHT (1948), shot by the legendary cinematographer John Alton.
