TCM's Classic Film Festival is coming to Chicago for one night only screening "North by Northwest", Tuesday, March 30. Unfortunately, only one film (and it's not really noir), but it's Hitchcock and Eva Marie Saint will be there with Robert Osborne! Tickets are FREE-print one out here: http://www.tcm.com/2010/roadtohollywood/chicago/ However, holding a ticket does not guarantee seating. I think it's kinda like Letterman or the Tonight Show where they give out more free tickets than seats just to make sure they have a full house-so get there plenty early if you plan to go.
The Film Forum in NY has another great schedule:
Anthony Mann films: Raw Deal, The Great Flamarion, Desperate, Reign of Terror, Devil's Doorway (and many other westerns), God's Little Acre....
they're also screening: Nightfall (Tourneur), Bad Day at Black Rock, Godard's Breathless
and two Proto noirs Crime Without Passion and The Scoundrel!!
EDIT: Website hasn't been updated yet. June/August schedule hopefully will be out soon. They're having all kinds of issues with their website.
I don't think there's been an announcement on BAN yet on this one which is listing a very solid line-up of films this year - plus some very special guests...
That is a great Palm Springs lineup. Kirk Douglas in person!! Now that is quite a coup.
I've always admired He Ran All The Way, but it became a revelation for me when I saw it in January at Noir City on the big screen. I'd love to meet the daughter of the the great John G. Julie had a small role in GOODFELLAS as De Niro's wife.
Night Editor - tell her that there is a guy in Chicago who thinks her Dad was God.
I think the Kirk Douglas intro at Palm Springs for Strange Love of Martha Ivers will be a recorded intro, not a personal appearance. The other listed guests are scheduled to be there in person.
Thanks, Rick. I'm looking forward to seeing some more Mann's on the big screen.
I'm also looking forward to the Mann festival. Raw Deal and T-Men on a double bill, as well as some of his great Westerns. I particularly want to see Winchester '73 on the big screen A great cast: Dan Duryea, Jimmy Stewart, Millard Mitchell, Will Geer, John McIntyre, Shelly Winters, and Rock Hudson as an Indian, believe it or not.
Mann...this is great:
Raw Deal and T-Men double-billed on the big screen on Sunday June 27…a must see for Mann and Alton fans
Desperate and He Walked By Night double-billed on the big screen on Sunday July 11…double trouble again
Reign of Terror and Side Street double-billed on the big screen on Wednesday July 14…a double uppercut knockout
Noir City: Chicago 2 has been scheduled. Like last year, it will be held at the Music Box theater. The dates are August 13-19. The Music Box has the complete schedule up at their website. Their summer schedule--including Noir Chicago--can be downloaded here.
FNF? Film Noir...Florida?

D'oh! Of course it's The Film Noir Foundation. I'm about as quick on the uptake as Moose Malloy.
For those interested and in the area, The Castro Theatre in San Francisco are having a bunch of double feature nights with a few noir and non-noir films playing.
THURSDAY JULY 1 double feature
IN A LONELY PLACE 2:35, 7:00
Nicholas Ray’s powerful drama stars Humphrey Bogart as a screenwriter on self-destruct who gets involved with starlet Gloria Grahame as he dodges a murder rap. A haunting work of stark confession in the guise of a taut noir thriller, this unflinching examination of disintegration is uniquely compelling. 1950 | 94 min | 35mm
THE PLAYER 4:30, 8:55
High-flying studio exec Tim Robbins has his complacency shaken by a series of threatening postcards from a writer he’s slighted. Deadly intrigue follows amid dozens of star cameos, film references and in-jokes aplenty, enhancing Robert Altman’s masterful distillation of Tinseltown’s foibles. 1992 | 124 min | 35mm
SATURDAY JULY 3 double feature
SUNSET BOULEVARD 2:55, 7:00
Impoverished screenwriter William Holden hides out in the mansion of imperious silent star Gloria Swanson and soon enough becomes her kept man. Brilliant dialog and a towering performance by Swanson indelibly mark Billy Wilder’s scathing reflection on the industry’s unrelenting cruelty in their glorification of youth. 1950 | 110 min | 35mm
THE STAR 1:00, 5:05, 9:10
Bette Davis plays it to the hilt as a washed up actress who was once one of Hollywood's great stars, her life and career now at an unfortunate crossroads as she edges into her 50s. Featuring Sterling Hayden, Natalie Wood and a panorama of L.A. locations. Directed by Stuart Heisler. 1952 | 90 min | 35mm
THURSDAY JULY 8 double feature
MULHOLLAND DR. 2:00, 7:00
Down from the Hollywood hills, an enigmatic woman wanders into the life of an aspiring actress and together they follow a labyrinthine mystery that could only come from the unique imagination of David Lynch. Naomi Watts, Laura Elena Herring and Justin Theroux lead the cast of this spellbinder. 2001 | 147 min | 35mm
THE LOVED ONE 4:40, 9:45
Outrageously funny indictment of Hollywood's shallow and degrading underbelly stars Robert Morse as a British poet visiting his art director uncle in California who is introduced to the seamier side of the funeral industry. Rod Steiger, Anjanette Comer, John Gielgud, Liberace and, in a dual role, Jonathan Winters also star in Tony Richardson's subversive adaptation of Evelyn Waugh's novel. 1965 | 121 min | 35mm
FRIDAY JULY 9 double feature
THE BAD AND THE BEAUTIFUL 2:35, 7:00
Vincente Minnelli’s searing Hollywood gothic tells the story of ruthless studio head Kirk Douglas via broken relationships with actress Lana Turner, writer Dick Powell and director Barry Sullivan. This was an Oscar winner for screenplay, score, cinematography, art direction, and Gloria Grahame’s Southern belle for Best Supporting Actress. 1952 | 118 min | 35mm
THE BIG KNIFE 4:50, 9:20
In this slash-and-burn expose on the moviemaking game swims a pool of loathsome producers, egomaniacal actors, spineless agents, betrayed wives and amoral starlets. His follow-up to Kiss Me Deadly, Robert Aldrich directs Jack Palance, Ida Lupino, Wendell Corey, Jean Hagen, Rod Steiger and Shelley Winters. 1955 | 111 min | 35mm
WEDNESDAY JULY 14 double feature
MILDRED PIERCE 2:30, 7:00
Joan Crawford won the Oscar for her lead role in this stylish film noir about a newly divorced housewife with two primary compulsions, to become a successful restaurateur and to buy the love of her haughty and conniving adolescent daughter. With Ann Blyth and Jack Carson; directed by Michael Curtiz. 1945 | 111 min | 35mm
LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN 4:45, 9:10
Compulsory viewing here as neurotic bride Gene Tierney goes to tragic lengths to hold onto her husband Cornel Wilde. Filmed in breathtakingly lush Technicolor, John M. Stahl’s melodrama garnered Tierney a Best Actress nomination, the award to be won that year by Joan Crawford. 1945 | 110 min | New 35mm print!
That's quite a great listing !! a lot of amazing films ...... wish they would do this sort of thing near me , would love to see "LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN " on the Big screen .
