The good folks at UCLA Film et Television Archive... have been restoring overlooked movies, and four of their efforts are freshly available on Blu-ray.

Three are noir films and one’s an unusual drama with a Frenchman’s view of America.

Produced independently by maverick European refugee Seymour Nebenzal for United Artists,

The Chase (1946) is a doozy of a postwar headache starring “Love That Bob” Cummings as a troubled, decorated, unemployed war vet who’s hired as a chauffeur by a suavely sadistic gangster (Steve Cochran).

It’s fair to wonder if the psychopath actually intends the chump to fall for his sultry trophy wife, played by Michele Morgan in long blonde locks and shimmery gowns.

An unfailingly wonderful Peter Lorre hangs around in world-weary cynical mode as a henchman.

He spends most of his time shrugging and yawning, so it means something when his boss’ moods make him wipe his brow.

This Is Issue No# 1 Cover...From ManHunt Magazine...Manhunt boasted it was the world's best-selling crime fiction magazine, and was certainly the "gold standard" against which all other "tough" crime magazines of the period measured themselves. Starting in January 1953 as a monthly digest, it flirted briefly (from March 1957 to May 1958) with a larger format to enhance newstand sales. The latter was not a success however and it soon reverted to digest size and dropped to bimonthly. In all it ran for almost 15 years and notched up a very respectable 114 issues.From January 1953 to March 1956 the cover read Manhunt Detective Story Monthly, but the magazine was always called just Manhunt in the table of contents.ISSUE NO#3 OF MANHUNTISSUE NO#11 OF MANHUNT[This issue features Henry Kane as...Cain takes over issue No# 8]   Huston's Jungle...[Pictured: A Screenshot From The 1949 Film "The Asphalt Jungle."

Lavinia King a backstreet attorney

This was completed for a challenge on Concept Art, and although I did a female character, I wanted to put her in a story in a ‘noir’ setting which is a genre in cinema I love. She’s a backstreet attorney caught up in something that’s ‘bigger than both of us kid !’  Looks like the only way out is to pay the ferryman…too !

This month film noir is "The Dark Corner " et "Ministry Of Fear..." on the play-list below...

The Dark Corner is a 1946 black-and-white film noir directed by Henry Hathaway that starred Lucille Ball, Mark Stevens and Clifton Webb.[1]

Ex-con turned private investigator Bradford Galt (Mark Stevens) suspects someone is following him and maybe even trying to kill him. With the assistance of his secretary Kathleen (Lucille Ball), he dives deep into a mystery in search of answers. Galt turns the tables on the man following him (William Bendix), who claims to be a private eye named Foss, hired by Galt's sworn enemy, a corrupt lawyer named Tony Jardine.

In the meantime, Jardine has begun having an affair with the much-younger wife of Hardy Cathcart (Clifton Webb), a wealthy art-gallery owner.

It appears that Jardine is setting up Galt to take another fall. But it turns out Foss is not a private eye but a thug named Stauffer, secretly working for Cathcart...You can find out what happened by watching the film on the play-list too !

THE QUOTE[S] IS FROM The 1947 Film noir "Out Of The Past..."
[Pictured actress Gloria Swanson and actor William Holden in the classic 1950 film noir "Sunset Blvd..." ]
Famous Quotes:
Joe Gillis (William Holden)
You're Norma Desmond. You used to be in silent pictures. You used to be big.

Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson)

I am big. It's the pictures that got small.

Joe Gillis (William Holden)

I knew there was something wrong with them.

and

Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson)

We didn't need dialogue. We had faces!

[pictured actor ROBERT MITCHUM IN "Out Of The Past"[1947]

This film was selected to the National Film Registry, Library of Congress, in 1991.

Share this Humphrey Bogart read the script and, seeing the similarities between this and The Maltese Falcon, wanted to play Jeff. However, Warner Bros. didn't buy the material and RKO produced this movie.

After Humphrey Bogart refused the lead it was offered to John Garfield and then Dick Powell, both of whom turned it down. Robert Mitchum was fourth choice.

AND...

Kathie Moffat: I didn't know what I was doing. I, I didn't know anything except how much I hated him. But I didn't take anything. I didn't, Jeff. Don't you believe me?

Jeff Bailey: Baby, I don't care.

Jeff Bailey: You can never help anything, can you? You're like a leaf that the wind blows from one gutter to another.

Kathie Moffat: Oh, Jeff, I don't want to die!

Jeff Bailey: Neither do I, baby, but if I have to I'm gonna die last.

Whit Sterling: My feelings? About ten years ago, I hid them somewhere and haven't been able to find them.

Jeff Bailey: How big a chump can you get to be? I was finding out.

Jeff Bailey: I never saw her in the daytime. We seemed to live by night. What was left of the day went away like a pack of cigarettes you smoked. I didn't know where she lived. I never followed her. All I ever had to go on was a place and time to see her again. I don't know what we were waiting for. Maybe we thought the world would end.

Jeff Bailey: You know, maybe I was wrong and luck is like love. You have to go all the way to find it.

Ann Miller: You do to keep it.

Ann Miller: She can't be all bad. No one is.

Jeff Bailey: Well, she comes the closest.

Sybil Jacobson, (23 November 1927 - 23 August 2011) was a motion-picture child actress who, in the late 1930s, was presented as a rival to Shirley Temple.[2]

Born in Cape Town, South Africa, she began playing the piano at age two and, a year later, began making public appearances doing impersonations of Maurice Chevalier. She was introduced to the theatre-going public of London by way of her uncle, Harry Jacobson, a then-popular London orchestra leader and also pianist to Gracie Fields. The apex of her career came with a concert performance with Frances Day at London's Palace Theatre. Jason's theatre work led to appearances on radio and phonograph records, and a supporting role in the film Barnacle Bill (1935).

Honorary members...actress Barbara Payton's biographer John O'Dowd  is a member here at FNLH...

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

Lawrence Tierney (March 15, 1919 – February 26, 2002) was an American actor, known for his many screen portrayals of mobsters and hardened criminals, which mirrored his own frequent brushes with the law.[1]

Commenting on the DVD release of a Tierney film in 2005, a New York Times critic observed, "The hulking Tierney was not so much an actor as a frightening force of nature."[2]

Double Indemnity 1944

Double Indemnity is a 1944 American film noir, directed by Billy Wilder, co-written by Wilder and Raymond Chandler, and produced by Buddy DeSylva and Joseph Sistrom. The screenplay was based on James M. Cain's 1943 novella of the same name, which originally appeared as an eight-part serial in Liberty magazine.

The film stars Fred MacMurray as an insurance salesman, Barbara Stanwyck as a provocative housewife who wishes her husband were dead, and Edward G. Robinson as a claims adjuster whose job is to find phoney claims. The term "double indemnity" refers to a clause in certain life insurance policies that doubles the payout in cases when death is caused by certain accidental means.

The Lady from Shanghai is a 1947 film noir directed by Orson Welles and starring Welles, his estranged wife Rita Hayworth and Everett Sloane. It is based on the novel If I Die Before I Wake by Sherwood King.

Leave Her To Heaven >When author Richard Harland is released from prison after serving a two-year sentence, he goes to Deer Lake, Maine, and is met by his attorney, Glen Robie. Glen sends Richard off in a waiting canoe to Richard's lodge, "Back of the Moon," then relates his story to a companion: A few years earlier, while Richard is working on a new novel, he accepts an invitation from Glen to vacation at his ranch in Jacinto, New Mexico. During the train ride, Richard is left breathless by the striking beauty of a woman who comments on his close resemblance to her late father.

Richard is then greeted at the station by Glen, who reveals that the beautiful woman, Ellen Berent, is also visiting the Robie family with her mother Margaret and adopted sister Ruth. During dinner, Ellen tells Richard that they have come to scatter her father's ashes at his favorite spot in the mountains, which he used to describe as "the front lawn of heaven." Richard follows the Berents when they depart in the morning and is fascinated by Ellen's demeanor as she scatters the ashes.

Kiss of Death

Doomed romanticism, dark city streets, double-crossing dames, disillusioned anti-heroes, murderous hoodlums, cynical cops, hard-boiled dialogue, head-spinning Expressionist style — it’s time for The Cinematheque’s annual summer celebration of the giddy, gloomy, seductive glories of Film Noir!

One of Golden-Age Hollywood’s richest and most creative (and most pitiless and pessimistic) periods, Film Noir picks up the shiny rock of the mid-20th-century American Dream, turns it over, and finds underneath a grubby American nightmare: a sordid, sleazy, fatalistic world teaming with greed, crime, corruption, cruelty, and sexual betrayal.

Our 2016 Noir season includes nine vintage noir gems, five of which we’ve never screened before (Kiss of Death, Johnny O’Clock, Thieves’ Highway, The Reckless Moment, and Underworld U.S.A.), plus two sensational sidebars spotlighting the legacy of this most influential of American film styles. Abandon hope - but expect great entertaining cinema! — all ye who enter here.

“Film noir was an immensely creative period – probably the most creative in Hollywood’s history.”
PAUL SCHRADER, NOTES ON FILM NOIR

We know you missed it when it took a powder last year – because you busted our chops and made us feel real rotten! Well, fear not! Actually, fear a lot! In fact, fall helplessly into a head-spinning, heart-in-your-throat delirium of fear. And fatalism. And darkness, despair, and disillusionment. Crime, corruption and chaos. Venality and greed. Double-crossing dames. Out-of-luck dupes. Yes, Film Noir, Vancouver’s most popular (and pessimistic) summer film series, is back!

“The original noirs remain the most resonant school of movie to have ever emerged in America.”
MICHAEL ATKINSON, TURNER CLASSIC MOVIES

Film Noir celebrates the stylish, seductive, cynical glories of one of the American cinema’s most aesthetically rich, influential, and angst-ridden genres. Join us in August for our almost annual excursion into this nasty, nihilistic netherworld, this pitiless urban nightmare of moral squalor, existential dread, postwar doubt, hard-as-nails dialogue, and eye-popping Expressionist style. And if that don’t sound like your thing, then you’re just a sucker! A cheap, two-bit sucker and a heel!

“Hitchcock was the first great movie director who knew
what to do with television: he used it to make himself
rich and famous.”
