REIGN OF TERROR

(1949, Anthony Mann) “Don’t call me ‘Max,’” hisses Richard Baseheart’s Robespierre – and the chase is on for the Black Book, his Nixonian list of guillotine-bound enemies.  “History is thrown to the wolves” (Time Out), but Mann, cameraman John Alton and Menzies go for the baroque via bizarre angles and chiaroscuro lighting. With Robert Cummings, Arlene Dahl and memorable cameo by Norman Lloyd as Tallien. Aka The Black Book. 35mm. Approx. 89 min.

DEADLINE AT DAWN

(1946, Harold Clurman) “Actress” Susan Hayward and cabbie Paul Lukas (uttering nutty Sweet Smell-worthy dialogue by Clifford Odets) sail around the mean streets of Manhattan in the wee small hours to help clear sailor Bill Williams of a murder rap. Sole film directing job by stage legend Clurman (Menzies hated him), based on a novel by Cornell Woolrich (Rear Window), aka “William Irish.” 35mm. Approx. 83 min.
