Danger, desire and despair. These are just some of the key elements that make a classic noir film.
One of the biggest celebrations of noir films, Noir City: Hollywood, celebrates its 21st anniversary this weekend and returns to the Egyptian theater for a 10-night event filled with femme fatales and quick paced, poetic dialogue.
Films from the festival include noir classics such as Joan Crawford’s 1952 film Sudden Fear, 1956’s A Kiss Before Dying with Robert Wagner, Humphrey Bogart’s The Harder They Fall & 1958’s Touch of Evil, directed by Orson Welles and starring Charlton Heston.
Eddie Muller, host of the Noir City: Hollywood film festival joins Larry and our FilmWeek critics to discuss the fun and fascinating history behind film noir.
