Film Noir Matinee Series
Published on Tuesday, April 10, 2012 - 3:31pm
This rarely-screened film is considered by many noir enthusiasts to be the “little B-movie that started it all.” Featuring tricky camera angles, atmospheric lighting and a fantastical nightmare sequence, Stranger on the Third Floor presents the tale of a newspaper reporter beset by doubt and suspicion after his courtroom testimony puts a man on death row for murder.
Join us for the film and a discussion, including the historical context of noir and why this film is considered to be the first in the genre.
B&W – Unrated – 64 minutes.
Saturday, April 21 - 2 p.m. Tenley Library – second floor auditorium.
