Film Noir Series
Tuesday, Aug. 20 at 6 p.m.
Lenny Zapala – film expert and director of the Menands Library – returns this summer and fall to host a Lizabeth Scott, Queen of Noir film series. Many of Hollywood’s best actresses have given brilliant performances as noir heroines; however, only one actress seemed to be made of noir and noir only – Lizabeth Scott. Up next: “Pitfall” (1948) directed by Andre DeToth. Liz doesn’t play a “bad” girl. She’s just a girl who’s all alone who falls for a married man and is being hunted by a stalker.
An average day in Noir-land.
