The Arthur Lyons Film Noir Festival

Tenth Anniversary Edition of Film Noir Festival Releases Partial List of Screenings


The 2010 Arthur Lyons Film Noir Festival, which is being presented by the Palm Springs Cultural Center, is celebrating its Tenth Anniversary with a very special selection of films, and some extra special guest appearances. Films and stars confirmed to date include:

Bury Me Dead (1947) A fast-paced tale of murder and obsession that was beautifully lensed by film noir’s finest cinematographer, John Alton. Rarely screened theatrically in 35mm, this obscure gem stars June Lockhart, Cathy O’Donnell and Hugh Beaumont. Actress June Lockhart is scheduled to attend the screening and discuss the film.

A Hatful of Rain (1957) Based on the stage play by Michael V. Gazzo, this noir-stained drama provides an early and frank look at drug addiction. The all star cast is headed by Don Murray, Eva Marie Saint, Anthony Franciosa and Lloyd Nolan. A rare opportunity to see a frequently overlooked classic on the big screen! Actor Don Murray is scheduled to attend the screening and discuss the film.

He Ran all the Way (1951) One of the seminal archetypes of the noir canon starring the one and only John Garfield in his final film with Shelley Winters, Wallace Ford and Norman Lloyd. The actual life and times of John Garfield adds heft to the impact of this important picture! Actress Julie Garfield, John Garfield’s daughter, is scheduled to attend the screening and discuss the film and her father’s life and career .

Cry of the City (1948) A groundbreaking urban oeuvre about childhood friendship evolving into an adult saga of good versus evil. Victor Mature stars as the forthright copper who pursues arch-criminal Richard Conte across Manhattan with stellar support from a svelte Shelley Winters, Tommy Cook, Debra Paget, and an ominous Hope Emerson. Actor-Producer Tommy Cook is scheduled to attend the screening and discuss the film.

711 Ocean Drive (1950) Edmond O’Brien stars as a whip-smart telephone technician who uses his knowledge of electronics to move up the ladder of the Syndicate in Southern California, until he is distracted by an inconveniently married Joanne Dru and his own greed. Partially filmed on location in Palm Springs with scenes from the famous Doll House watering hole on North Palm Canyon Drive!

Pitfall (1948) One of the classic films noir that illustrates what obsession and boredom can create in post World War II Los Angeles. A thought-provoking, wonderfully crafted film starring Dick Powell, noir icon Lizabeth Scott, Jane Wyatt, and Raymond Burr.

And more!
