TRY AND GET ME! aka THE SOUND OF FURY in 35mm
The true story of a shocking 1934 kidnapping and murder in San Jose provided the inspiration for one of the most compelling and unjustly neglected masterpieces of film noir. Ex-GI Frank Lovejoy, struggling to support his family, meets flashy hoodlum Lloyd Bridges, who eases the gullible Lovejoy into a lucrative life of crime. Their escapade turns dark and desperate when Bridges takes hostage the son of a wealthy local businessman. One of the last films made in the U.S. by blacklisted writer/director Cy Endfield before he relocated to England, this film (originally released as THE SOUND OF FURY) has been restored by the Film Noir Foundation so that it may be experienced in its original form by future generations and assume its rightful status as one of the great films of its era. Not on DVD! (Note courtesy of Noir City.) DIR Cy Endfield; SCR Jo Pagano, from his novel "The Condemned"; PROD Robert Stillman. U.S., 1950, b&w, 91 min. NOT RATED
Restoration funded by the Film Noir Foundation.
