THE TALL TARGET
Wednesday, February 5
(1951, Anthony Mann) On board Abraham Lincoln’s inauguration-bound train, freelancing NYC cop Dick Powell (character name John Kennedy!) teams up with Union officer Adolphe Menjou to foil an assassination plot – or does he? “A Noir mini-masterpiece. Sinewy camera movement, elegantly modulated rhythms, and arresting paranoia.” – Slant Magazine. With Ruby Dee. 35mm. Approx. 78 min.
