Movie Diary 10/11/2021

We’re in the midst of a Scarecrow Academy semester on Zoom, this one called “The Art in Noir: Film Noir and the Director Part 2.” Join us for this free discussion series, which goes on Saturdays at 2 pm Pacific Time. Here I am introducing our next topic, for October 16th, a look at Ida Lupino’s 1953 film The Hitch-Hiker, with a special second feature in the form of the 1960 Twilight Zone episode also called (but unrelated) The Hitch-Hiker. I explain here.
