The 4th Annual Festival of Film Noir

Guild Cinema returns with its ever-popular Film Noir series. This year it's running three weeks--from Sunday, June 17, through Thursday, July 5. Some of these films are newly restored on 35mm, and most are still unavailable on video or DVD. All screenings are pay-one-price double features, starting this week with Sam Fuller's Pickup on South Street and Anthony Mann's T-Men (June 28-29). There's a special late-night screening of the campy burlesque-set murder mystery Screaming Mimi starring Anita Ekberg and Gypsy Rose Lee on Friday and Saturday (June 29-30). That's followed by Jean-Pierre Melville's 1970 jewel heist masterpiece Le Cercle Rouge and the gritty 1957 gold heist flick Plunder Road (June 30-July 1). Two dark melodramas by director Max Ophüls, Caught with Barbara Bel Geddes and The Reckless Moment with Joan Bennett, are up next (July 2-3). The festival closes out with the 1957 Richard Conte mob drama The Brothers Rico and the Robert Aldrich-helmed union exposé The Garment Jungle (July 4-5).
