Synopsis

Proto-Noir Marathon! THE NINTH GUEST, 1934, Sony Repertory, 65 min. Dir. Roy William Neill. A spine-tingling “locked-room” mystery about eight guests invited to spend a night in a penthouse apartment, where a disembodied host asks them to deduce the identity of the ninth guest by morning … or else! LET US LIVE, 1939, Sony Repertory, 68 min. Dir. John Brahm. Innocent taxi drivers Henry Fonda and Alan Baxter are railroaded to the death house for a robbery-homicide in this compelling proto-noir. HEAT LIGHTNING, 1934, Warner Bros., 63 min. Dir. Mervyn LeRoy. An existential pre-Code gem with a feminist slant, about two sisters (Ann Dvorak and Aline MacMahon) who run a Mojave Desert filling station/tourist stop and become trapped by a pair of gunmen (Preston Foster and Lyle Talbot) on the lam. SAFE IN HELL, 1931, Warner Bros., 73 min. Dir. William A. Wellman. In this lurid pre-Code thriller, New Orleans prostitute Dorothy MacKaill is accused of murdering the pimp who turned her out.
