Out of the Past (1947)

Out of the Past 1947 Robert Mitchum and Jane GreerSecond Friday Noir

This Friday October 12th

On the second Friday of every month, come to the Eureka Theater and take comfort in watching men & women in great hats make far worse life choices than your own. Complete the evening with a cocktail from our full bar. Vintage outfits optional, but encouraged–hey, why should they be the only ones to look like a million bucks?

Featuring an ex-private eye (Robert Mitchum) who can’t seem to escape his past, an elegant flashback structure, a doomed hero, a venal gangster (Kirk Douglas) and—of course—Jane Greer playing a femme as fatale as any in cinema, it’s shot by Nicholas Musuraca as if “black is the new black” and boasts an endless stream of quotable, hardboiled dialogue (“Build my gallows high, baby”). Director Jacques Tourneur brings B-movie style and soul to an “A” picture and delivers, perhaps, the archetypal film noir that – like its anti-heroine – is beautiful, seductive and “a little cold around the heart.”
