Double Feature: THE ACCUSED + THE THREAT

Intro by Film Noir Foundation charter director and treasurer Alan K. Rode

THE ACCUSED (1949) in 35mm
Demure college professor Loretta Young finds herself in jeopardy after killing an amorous student in self-defense. As the noose tightens, both the victim's guardian Robert Cummings and a dogged homicide detective Wendell Corey fall for her — being a killer apparently makes her irresistible to men. A decidedly feminine slant on a classic noir premise. (Note courtesy of Film Noir Foundation.) DIR William Dieterle; SCR Ketti Frings, from a novel by June Truesdell; PROD Hal B. Wallis. U.S., 1949, b&w, 101 min. NOT RATED
