NOIR CITY Chicago kicks off tonight with a Peter Lorre double bill, THREE STRANGERS & THE FACE BEHIND THE MASK.
Fri 17 Aug, 7:30pm
The verities of fate are explored this fantastic tale of three strangers (Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, and Geraldine Fitzgerald ) whose fates entwine with a mysterious Chinese idol and a winning lottery ticket. Deeply cynical, gloriously atmospheric. Never on DVD, almost lost in 35mm, we proudly present this forgotten classic in a brand new FNF-funded preservation print! Directed by Jean Negulesco Screenplay by John Huston and Howard Koch.

THE FACE BEHIND THE MASK
Peter Lorre stars as an immigrant watchmaker, horribly disfigured in a fire, whose despair and alienation lead him into a life of crime. A friendship with a young blind woman (Evelyn Keyes) offers him a shot at love and redemption. But … this is a noir film festival. Directed by Robert Florey, screenplay by Paul Jarrico.
