Event Description

(1953) dir John H. Auer w/Gig Young, Mala Powers, William Talman, Edward Arnold, Chill Wills, Marie Windsor [90 min; DCP]

Cop Johnny Kelly (Young) has had enough of Chicago, in both the mean streets and on the chilly domestic front. He’d run off with his stripper girlfriend Angel Face (Powers) if he could only get his hands on enough scratch to stake them to a new start. Thus begins one long, fantastical night in the Windy City, where saints and sinners collide in a pile-up of crimes, and Johnny’s dreams and nightmares all come true. This noir oddity, narrated by The City itself, is a low-rent masterpiece of B-moviemaking, evocatively shot by John L. (Psycho) Russell, and featuring a stellar cast headed by noir favorites Marie Windsor and William Talman.

A "Double Feature" ticket additionally allows admission into the 4:15 PM screening of PUSHOVER. No additional purchase is necessary.
