In January we kick off three classic noir films directed by Anthony Mann and shot by cinematographer John Alton! All three films have been recently restored and remastered!
First up, on January 14th we have the 1947 thriller T-MEN!  When the trail goes cold on a counterfeit ring in Los Angeles, Treasury agents Dennis O’Brien (Dennis O’Keefe) and Tony Genaro (Alfred Ryder) are called upon to infiltrate the dangerous underworld of organized crime.
A major box office success upon its release, T-Men holds a special place in film noir canon not only as director Anthony Mann’s breakout film, but as the initial pairing of the filmmaker and cinematographer John Alton. Their combination of highly stylized camera set-ups, along with the brilliant uses of light and shadows, created the gritty realism and visual tension that made their crime thrillers popular with critics and movie patrons alike. You won’t want to miss this one on our big screen!

Next up on February 11th we have 1948’s RAW DEAL in which Mann and Alton re-team with actor Dennis O’Keefe. O’Keefe is Joe Sullivan, a career criminal in prison for robbery.  Sullivan has taken the rap for sadistic gangster Rick Coyle (played by a never more sinister Raymond Burr) who double-crosses him with a flawed escape plan in the hopes of getting rid of him. He is also torn between two smoldering dames who both love him in different ways.

And our Mann and Alton trilogy concludes on March 11th with the gritty HE WALKED BY NIGHT!
When a Los Angeles police officer is savagely gunned down, a city-wide manhunt ensues for his cunning and ruthless killer. But finding the murderer proves difficult for Detective Marty Brennan (Scott Brady) and his colleagues as the killer is always one step ahead of the law.
Visually stunning, cinematographer John Alton’s brilliant use of light and shadows shine in this groundbreaking police procedural that paved the way for the TV series Dragnet; which itself spawned an entire sub-genre of television crime-dramas that are still popular to this day.
Based on true events, He Walked by Night was officially directed by Alfred L. Werker, though the uncredited Anthony Mann is believed to be responsible for the film’s most iconic scenes.
