TRAPPED
1949, 78 min, Dir: Richard Fleischer

Producer Bryan Foy replicates the success of T-MEN (1947) with a gritty tale of Secret Service agents hunting a counterfeiting racket through the streets of Los Angeles. Expertly helmed by director Richard Fleischer, the film pairs a young Lloyd Bridges with 22-year old Barbara Payton, whose tempestuous career and tragic life became a staple of ’50s tabloids. Also starring the suave John Hoyt, and featuring a climactic showdown inside the downtown L.A. Red Car barn. Not on DVD!

THE FILE ON THELMA JORDON
1950, Paramount, 100 min, Dir: Robert Siodmak

Barbara Stanwyck is an ambiguous femme fatale who ensnares a lovelorn assistant D.A. (Wendell Corey) in a murder scheme. Ketti Frings’ screenplay imbues a traditional noir recipe with a genuine sense of longing and loss. This was Siodmak’s next-to-last film before abandoning Hollywood, and we’re thrilled to give it a rare theatrical screening. With Paul Kelly, Stanley Ridges, and Richard Rober.


Special Ticket Price: $15. No vouchers. | TRAPPED 35mm restored print courtesy of the UCLA Film & Television Archive. Restoration funded by the Film Noir Foundation and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association Charitable Trust.
