"The City was dark with something more than night." - Raymond Chandler~
[Pre Code and Noir dwells here, in the shadows.
Beginning next year, movie studios plan to begin phasing out renting 35mm prints of vintage movies to theaters, forcing revival theaters to show them in digital format only.
This is not how these classic films were meant to be seen, at the push of a sterile button, in a non film format, and many classic films will also fall by the wayside and become lost films - there is an online petition to hopefully stop this by Following This Link:

Actress Barbara Payton... starred in "Trapped" with actor Lloyd Bridges and "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye" with actor James Cagney.
Born Barbara Lee Redfield in Cloquet, Minnesota, she was the daughter of restaurateurs and raised in Odessa, Texas. In 1945 at the age of 17, she headed for Hollywood in search of a career in movies and was eventually placed under contract by Universal Studios where she appeared in several small parts.
She first gained notice in the 1949 film noir Trapped, co-starring Lloyd Bridges. After being screen-tested by James Cagney and his producer brother William, Payton starred with Cagney in Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye in 1950. She soon signed a contract with Cagney’s production company. Her brief stardom continued with significant roles in the western films Dallas (1950), co-starring Gary Cooper, and Only the Valiant (1951), with Gregory Peck.
Her career decline began with the 1951 horror film Bride of the Gorilla, co-starring Raymond Burr. Miss Payton's biographer John O' Dowd is also a member here at Film Noir Lives Here

[Pictured:] Actress Gloria Grahame (November 28, 1923 – October 5, 1981) was an American actress.
Grahame began her acting career in theatre, and in 1944 she made her first film for MGM. Despite a featured role in It's a Wonderful Life (1946), MGM did not believe she had the potential for major success, and sold her contract to RKO Studios. Often cast in film noir projects, Grahame received a nomination for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for Crossfire (1947), and she won this award for her work in The Bad and the Beautiful (1952). She achieved her highest profile with Sudden Fear (1952), Human Desire (1953),The Big Heat (1953), and Oklahoma! (1955), but her film career began to wane soon afterwards.
She returned to work on the stage, but continued to appear in films and television productions, usually in supporting roles. Diagnosed with stomach cancer in 1980, Grahame refused to accept the diagnosis and travelled to England to work in a play. Her health rapidly failed and she returned to New York City, where she died in 1981...Early life
Grahame was born Gloria Hallward in Los Angeles, California. Reginald Michael Bloxam Hallward, her father, was an architect and author and her mother, Jeanne McDougall, who used the stage name Jean Grahame, was a British stage actress and acting teacher. The couple had another daughter, Joy Hallward (1911-2003), an actress who married the brother of Robert Mitchum. McDougall taught her younger daughter acting during her childhood and adolescence.
Grahame was signed to a contract with MGM Studios under her professional name after Louis B. Mayer saw her performing on Broadway for several years.
She made her film debut in Blonde Fever (1944) and scored one of her most widely praised roles as the promiscuous Violet, who is saved from disgrace by George Bailey in It's a Wonderful Life (1946). MGM was not able to develop her potential as a star and her contract was sold to RKO Studios in 1947.
Grahame was often featured in film noir pictures as a tarnished beauty with an irresistible sexual allure. During this time, she made films for several Hollywood studios. She received an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress for Crossfire (1947).
in her Academy Award winning role in The Bad and the Beautiful (1952)Grahame starred with Humphrey Bogart in the 1950 film In a Lonely Place, a performance which garnered her considerable praise. Though today it is considered among her finest performances, it wasn't a box-office hit and Howard Hughes, owner of RKO Studios, admitted that he never saw it. When she asked to be loaned out for roles in Born Yesterday and A Place in the Sun, Hughes refused and instead made her do a supporting role in Macao. However, she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in MGM's The Bad and the Beautiful (1952).
Other memorable roles included the scheming Irene Nieves in Sudden Fear (1952), the femme fatale Vicki Buckley in Human Desire (1953), and mob moll Debby Marsh in Fritz Lang's The Big Heat (1953) in which, in a horrifying scene, she is scarred by hot coffee thrown in her face offscreen by Lee Marvin's character.
Grahame's career began to wane after her performance in the musical movie Oklahoma! (1955). Grahame, whom audiences were used to seeing as a noir siren, was miscast as an ignorant country lass in a wholesome musical, and the paralysis of her upper lip from plastic surgery altered her speech and appearance. She began a slow return to the theater, and returned to films occasionally to play supporting roles, mostly in minor releases. She appeared on television too, including an episode of the ABC sitcom, Harrigan and Son, starring Pat O'Brien.
Grahame has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for her contribution to Motion Pictures, at 6522 Hollywood Boulevard. In Order To Read More About Actress Gloria Graham Just Follow The Link On The SideBar...
The only surviving copy of what is believed to be Alfred Hitchcock's first foray into film-making has been found halfway around the world from Hollywood. The first 30 minutes of "The White Shadow," a story about two sisters -- one angelic, the other "without a soul" -- played by silent film star Betty Compson was apparently stored in the New Zealand Film Archive amongst a cache of early 20th century American film. The footage will premiere on Sept. 22 at Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. So far only three reels of the six-reel feature film have been discovered.

Ray Heindorf (August 25, 1908 - February 2, 1980) was an American songwriter, composer, conductor, and arranger.
Born in Haverstraw, New York, Heindorf worked as a pianist in a movie house in Mechanicville in his early teens. In 1928, he moved to New York City, where he worked as a musical arranger before heading to Hollywood. He gained his first job as an orchestrator at MGM, where he worked on Hollywood Revue of 1929, and subsequently went on the road playing piano for Lupe Velez.
After completing this engagement, he joined Warner Bros., composing and/or arranging and conducting music exclusively for the studio for nearly forty years. Heindorf, along with Georgie Stoll at MGM, were jazz aficionados well known in the black entertainment community for employing minority musicians in their studio music departments.
He undertook the musical direction of Judy Garland's 1954 comeback film A Star is Born and made a cameo appearance as himself in the premiere party sequence where Jack Carson's character congratulates him on a great score.
Among Heindorf's other screen credits are 42nd Street, Gold Diggers of 1935, The Great Lie, Knute Rockne All American, Kings Row, Night and Day, Tea for Two, A Streetcar Named Desire, The Jazz Singer, No Time for Sergeants, The Helen Morgan Story, Marjorie Morningstar, Damn Yankees, Auntie Mame, Finian's Rainbow, and his final musical for Jack Warner, 1776.
Between 1943 and 1969 he was nominated for eighteen Academy Awards and won three, for Yankee Doodle Dandy, This is the Army, and The Music Man.
Heindorf was a friend and admirer of jazz pianist Art Tatum. He hosted two Tatum piano performances at his Hollywood home in 1950 and 1955 for their mutual friends. Heindorf taped the private concerts, complete with background conversations of Tatum and the group, with some of the pianist's very best playing. These performances are now available on the Verve label.
Census records from 1930 show that Heindorf lived with bandleader and composer Arthur Lange, who was nearly 20 years his senior, in the Hollywood Hills. Heindorf died in Tarzana, California, aged 71, and was buried with his favorite conducting baton.Bio written by Malcolm James
I have posted information about Ray Heindorf...
