Introduction by Film Noir Foundation’s Foster Hirsch!
John Alton Triple Feature
Fugitive crook Johnny Muller (Henreid) finds the perfect hiding place—in the guise of a psychiatrist who is his identical twin… almost. One of the sublime examples of noir fatalism with a clever script that will keep you guessing right up until the end. It’s also an amazingly evocative look at 1940s Los Angeles, photographed by the great John Alton. Brattle Debut!
