FLY-BY-NIGHT (1942) in 35mm
Don't miss this little-seen gem, one of the first Hollywood efforts of noir maestro Robert Siodmak. Shifting with Hitchcockian aplomb between suggestive light comedy and thickly shadowed suspense, Siodmak stuffs two features' worth of stylish set pieces into a sprightly running time, making this as good a wartime "B" picture as anything produced in the era. Richard Carlson and Nancy Kelly's romance-on-the-run chemistry, laced with witty innuendo, is reminiscent of Robert Donat and Madeleine Carroll in THE 39 STEPS. Great fun, and surprisingly sexy for its time. (Note courtesy of Noir City.) DIR Robert Siodmak; SCR Jay Dratler, F. Hugh Herbert; PROD Sol C. Siegel. U.S., 1942, b&w, 74 min. NOT RATED
