Monday, May 14:
RETURN OF THE WHISTLER
A young man and his lovely French fiancé are thrown into a bizarre world of intrigue one stormy night when their car breaks down by a dilapidated inn. The eighth and final Whistler film (and the only one not to feature Richard Dix, who had died the year before) is a moody swan song, a complex mystery with typically sinister implications. From a story by Cornell Woolrich. Starring Michael Duane, Lenore Aubert, Richard Lane, Ann Doran. Photographed by Philip Tannura. Directed by D. Ross Lederman. In B&W. 35mm Studio Archive Print. 60 mins. 1948. (Note: this film was not included in our 2010 retrospective of Whistler films.) MON at 8:00 only!
THE STRANGE MR. GREGORY
A famous but demented magician devises a diabolical plan to murder the husband of the woman he obsessively covets. Mesmerization, murder, and suspended animation all play into this kinky mix. Intensely erotic, this really is a thoroughly weird and totally RARE Poverty Row sleeper! Starring Edmond Lowe, Jean Rogers, Donald Douglas, Frank Reicher. Photographed by Ira Morgan. Directed by Phil Rosen. In B&W. Presented in high quality DIGITAL. 63 mins. 1945. MON at 6:40 and 9:20
