Event Description

Try and Get Me! (aka The Sound of Fury)
(1950) dir Cy Endfield w/Frank Lovejoy, Lloyd Bridges, Kathleen Ryan, Richard Carlson [91 min; 35mm]
The true story of a shocking 1934 kidnapping and murder provided the inspiration for one of the most compelling—and unjustly neglected—masterpieces of film noir. Ex-GI Howard Tyler (Lovejoy), struggling to support his family, meets flashy hoodlum Jerry Slocum (Bridges), who eases the gullible vet into a life of crime. One of the last U.S. films by blacklisted writer/director Cy Endfield, TRY AND GET ME (originally released as The Sound of Fury) was restored by the Film Noir Foundation so future generations might recognize its status as one of the great and prescient films of its era.

(1950) dir Joseph Pevney w/Howard Duff, Brian Donlevy, Peggy Dow, Lawrence Tierney [80 min; 35mm]
This one’s so rare our screening is like a theatrical re-premiere! Howard Duff plays an unscrupulous and ambitious Weegee-like photographer whose blackmailing ways lead him into the crossfire of warring San Francisco gangsters played by Brian Donlevy and Lawrence Tierney. The first film directed by Joe Pevney, one of the most recognizable character actors of the film noir era, is cold-blooded fun, with a bitter, uncompromising finale.
