Introduction by Film Noir Foundation’s Foster Hirsch!
John Payne and Dan Duryea play dandy grifters bent on bilking a wealthy war widow (Joan Caulfield) into funding a non-existent war memorial. Both these sharpies get tangled up with saucy Shelley Winters, who’s more dangerous than a loaded .38! The cast has a field day firing Bowers’ one-liners faster than speeding bullets. We are thrilled to screen this riotously entertaining, little-known gem in a glorious 35mm print courtesy of Universal Pictures. Brattle Debut!
Double Feature with SORRY, WRONG NUMBER
