I WAKE UP DREAMING 2013: 99 44/100% NOIR
Discover the Weird World of Arch Oboler!
After a nuclear holocaust reduces the world to a cinder, the last five people remaining manage to find one another. But the road to a renewed civilization is often paved with very bad intentions. One of the most starkly bleak films of the 1950s, a cautionary tale to end them all. This rarely screened gem will haunt your dreams. Starring William Phipps, Susan Douglas, James Anderson, Charles Lampkin, and Earl Lee. Photographed by Sid Lubow and Louis Clyde Stoumen. Written and directed by Arch Oboler. In B&W. 35mm Studio Archive Print. 90 mins. 1951. WED at 8:00 only!
A beautiful young woman sits on death row, accused of the cold-blooded murder of her fiancé. But what about the strange voices she hears in her head? Is it possible that there are actually two different women living inside her body? A renowned psychiatrist tries desperately to unravel the psychological terrors locked away inside her mind before the clock in the death house tolls. A gripping, atmospheric B noir as rare as it is sublime. Starring Phyllis Thaxter, Edmund Gwenn, and Henry Daniels. Photographed by Charles Salerno, Jr. Written and directed by Arch Oboler. In B&W. Archive Digital. 65 mins. 1945. WED at 6:30 and 9:45.
