I Wake Up Dreaming 2013: 99 44/100% NOIR
A Roxie Tribute to Beverly Michaels!!
A blonde floozy drifts into town and lands a job as a waitress in a broken-down bar. She sets her sights on the owner of the bar and soon a hair-brained scheme to knock off his alcoholic wife is hatched. Complications arise when her repulsively lecherous neighbor learns of the plot. One of Hollywood's great (but rarely seen) sleaze classics, a mind-warping experience! Starring Beverly Michaels, Richard Egan, and Percy Helton. Photographed by Edward Fitzgerald. Directed by Russell Rouse. In B&W. 35mm Studio Print. 77 mins. 1953. FRI at 8:00 only!
Beyond lurid, this notorious low-budget head-scratcher tempts us with the premise of a dotty, neurotic widower (with a sizable wad of cash) being subjected to the venomous wiles of a heartless gold-digger. Deliriously lowbrow in the best possible sense, this tawdry film will baffle and delight anyone with a thirst for down and dirty noir and a healthy sense of humor. Starring Beverly Michaels, Hugo Haas, and Allan Nixon. Photographed by Paul Ivano. Written and directed by Hugo Haas. In B&W. 35mm Studio Print. 78 mins. 1951. FRI at 6:15 and 9:45.
