Movie Diary 10/4/2021

Please join us Saturday, 10/9, at 2 pm Pacific Time for another free Zoom session of Scarecrow Academy. As our semester, “The Art in Noir: Film Noir and the Director Part 2” continues, we will convene to discuss Samuel Fuller’s Pickup on South Street (1953), a terrific hard-nosed noir starring Richard Widmark, Jean Peters, and the peerless Thelma Ritter. Check the Scarecrow Academy page for info on how to sign up (you need not have previously attended), and if you must, listen to me introduce the film below.
