Mann to Mann: Rare Double Feature Highlights Film-Noir Fest at the Egyptian 

Wednesday, Apr 8 2009
Comments

In the rarely shown early Anthony Mann film Two O’Clock Courage (1945), which screens this week as part of the American Cinematheque’s 11th annual film-noir festival, cabbie lady Ann Rutherford picks up amnesiac Tom Conway, who will soon discover himself accused of a high-profile murder. If this well-paced programmer seems lighthearted for Mann, that’s because it is a remake of a 1936 comedy with Gail Patrick, Two in the Dark. But there’s plenty of cooky business here, too, including a society brat played by a 20-year-old Jane Greer. Then it’s Desperate (1947), with Raymond Burr and Steve Brody, and it’s already a Mann’s Man’s World.

American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theatre; Thurs., April 9, 7:30 p.m., www.americancinematheque.com.
