14th Annual Film Festival of Film Noir, Alan Ladd, American Cinematheque, Film noir, Hollywood, The Great Gatsby
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.
