Nothing But Noir - Part Two!
Back by popular demand, the winter 2017 film series features the second of our ﬁlm series that dares to walk the cinematic mean streets of the genre known as “Film Noir”!
Please join host ﬁlmmaker and scholar Mark Larson as we follow the dead-end guys and the women that love them through this fascinating motion picture shadow world! A spirited post-show discussion follows every ﬁlm.
Mildred Pierce (1945)
And there is only one woman who can dish back what crumbs the world has given her and that’s Joan Crawford! This brilliant tale of deceit and murder, framed in a glorious melodrama of a mother’s love gone wrong, is one of director Michael Curtiz’ great achievements!
