Double Feature: THE UNSUSPECTED + HIGH TIDE

Intro by Film Noir Foundation founder Eddie Muller

THE UNSUSPECTED
When the secretary of popular radio personality Claude Rains commits suicide, the commentator uses his considerable storytelling gifts to suggest murder and flush the culprit from a rat's nest of suspects. This clever and complex murder mystery — chock full of terrific character actors (including a sexy and savage Audrey Totter) — gets the deluxe noir treatment from director Michael Curtiz and ace cameraman Woody Bredell (THE KILLERS). (Note courtesy of Film Noir Foundation.) DIR/PROD Michael Curtiz; SCR Ranald MacDougall, from a novel by Charlotte Armstrong; PROD Charles Hoffman. U.S., 1947, b&w, 103 min. NOT RATED

Followed by:
HIGH TIDE (1947) in 35mm
A crusading newspaper editor (motor-mouthed Lee Tracy) gets more than he bargained for when he hires a private dick (tight-lipped Don Castle) to protect him from riled-up gangsters. Featuring one of the greatest flashback set-ups ever, this is as witty and moody as any "B" noir of the era. (Note courtesy of Film Noir Foundation.) DIR John Reinhardt; SCR Robert Presnell, Sr., from a story by Raoul Whitfield; PROD Jack Wrather. U.S., 1947, b&w, 72 min. NOT RATED
