Ultra-Rare Film Noir Double Feature!

THE TURNING POINT (1952) & THE SCARLET HOUR (1956)

In THE TURNING POINT, prosecutor Edmond O’Brien leads a government probe into a crime syndicate, but he’s hamstrung by pervasive political corruption.

In THE SCARLET HOUR, tony seductress Carol Ohmart and her lover Tom Tryon overhear plans for a jewel robbery, and believe the scheme will be their deliverance from Ohmart’s possessive husband.

The longest-running film noir festival in Los Angeles returns to the Egyptian Theatre with another incredible lineup of rarities, presented as they were meant to be seen — on the big screen! To celebrate the 20th anniversary of NOIR CITY: HOLLYWOOD, we delve deep into the archives to present a sizzling slate of sinister cinema — virtually all in glorious 35mm, including prints struck expressly for this series. All of the films take place in the City of Angels.

Returning as hosts, are Eddie Muller and Alan K. Rode, whose Film Noir Foundation will proudly present 10 consecutive nights of sinuous shadows, dangerous desires and bitter beauties brimming with broken dreams. The format of the series will involve double features that begin with an «A» list crime picture, paired with a lesser known, «B-movie» title.

The series is highlighted with an appearance by master of noir crime fiction, James Ellroy who will appear with the 1997 neo-noir, L.A. CONFIDENTIAL, which is based on one of Ellroy's novels.

Quite a few titles in the series have to be seen theatrically, as they are not on DVD.

All screenings hosted by Eddie Muller and/or Alan K. Rode of the Film Noir Foundation.
