I Wake Up Dreaming 2013: 99 44/100% NOIR
MY GUN IS QUICK
Thick as a brick private dick Mike Hammer takes pity on a sexy prostitute one night in a dingy L.A. diner after she's roughed up by her thug boyfriend. He fronts her the price of a bus ticket back home but when she turns up dead the next morning, the cops come calling on Hammer. Before long our hero is up to his chin stubble in murder and worse! Tough, slick late-model noir from the pen of Mickey Spillane. Starring Robert Bray, Whitney Blake, Patricia Donahue, Donald Randolph, and Pamela Duncan. Photographed by Harry Neumann. Directed by Phil Victor and George White. In B&W. 35mm Studio Print. 90 mins. 1957. TUES at 8:00 only!
THE TATTOOED STRANGER
The grisly remains of an unknown murdered woman turn up in an abandoned stolen car and the only clue the cops have to her identity is the tattoo on her arm. A gritty, low-budget noir atmospherically shot on grubby New York locations with a largely unknown cast. Rare! Starring John Miles, Patricia Barry, Walter Kinsella, and Frank Tweddell. Photographed by William Steiner. Directed by Edward Montagne. In B&W. 16mm film print. 64 mins. 1950. TUES at 6:40 and 9:45.
