Starts Friday at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, presented by the American Cinematheque.  The opening night film is the 1949 version of “The Great Gatsby.”  Yes, it’s usually not considered a noir film, but it’s adultery, murder, gangsters are all noir usual suspects, so I guess it does qualify as noir.

This version stars Alan Ladd as Jay Gatsby, the bootlegger turned new money hero to old money Daisy Buchanan.  It goes till May 6 and features some pre-code films.


Film Noir is great inspiration material for anyone working on Fall.
