One of the Greatest Film Noir Stars of Them All? Four Crime Classics to Remember

21 January 2017 11:36 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Dana Andrews. Dana Andrews movies: First-rate film noir actor Dana Andrews is Turner Classic Movies' star this evening, Jan. 21. Besides being one of the best-looking and most underrated actors of the studio era, Andrews was a first-rate film noir/crime thriller star. TCM is presenting four crime dramas starring Andrews: the 20th Century Fox releases Fallen Angel (1945) and Boomerang! (1947), and the Rko releases While the City Sleeps (1956) and Beyond a Reasonable Doubt (1956). Unlike the cynical, tough-talking, and (albeit at times self-delusionally) self-confident characters often played by the likes of Alan Ladd, Edward G. Robinson, James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart, and Robert Mitchum, Andrews brought to life tortured men at odds with his social standing, his sense of ethics, and even his romantic yearnings.

Twilight Time, bless ’em, hands us another treat to go with their 3-D discs of Man in the Dark, Miss Sadie Thompson and Harlock Space Pirate 3-D — and this time it’s a fun bit of 1950s horror — with a hot pair of short subject extras.

There have been plenty of theories as to why horror films became scarce after WW2; it’s as if the U.S. film industry took a ten-year break from the supernatural, and partly »

Locarno Blog. Gene Tierney

9 January 2017 6:46 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The Notebook is the North American home for Locarno Film Festival Artistic Director Carlo Chatrian's blog. Chatrian has been writing thoughtful blog entries in Italian on Locarno's website since he took over as Director in late 2012, and now you can find the English translations here on the Notebook as they're published. The Locarno Film Festival will be taking place August 2 - 12. We can  begin with one of those anecdotes that are the stuff of Hollywood, marking the birth of a star and mapping out a whole career. Gene Tierney had already caught the eye of Anatole Litvak when aged only 17 and, after a happy period of study abroad (right here in Switzerland, in Lausanne), had been invited by a cousin to visit a Hollywood film set. But she took her father’s advice and turned down an offer from Warner Bros in favor of starting on the stage, on Broadway. »

As a teenager, many of my first and strongest movie impressions came not from the movies, but from certain critics. I memorized Robin Wood’s analysis before getting a look at Hitchcock’s Psycho. Raymond Durgnat introduced me to Georges Franju and Luis Buñuel, and I first learned to appreciate a number of great movies including The Barefoot Contessa from Richard Corliss, a terrific critic who championed writers over director-auteurs.

The Barefoot Contessa is a classically structured story, in that it could work as a novel; it’s told from several points of view. »
