Arthur Lyons Noir Fest Includes Lorre

Among the many film noir movies in Peter Lorre’s credits are two films adapted from Cornell Woolrich novels – Black Angel (1946) and The Chase (1946). Both are scheduled for this year’s Arthur Lyons Film Noir Festival, to be held in Palm Springs, California, from Thursday, May 11 to Sunday, May 14, 2017.

Founded in 2000 by the late mystery writer Arthur Lyons and now produced and hosted by film noir expert Alan K. Rode, the festival includes movies, events, special guests, and post-screening discussions. The full schedule is available on the festival’s website. Both Lorre films will be shown on Friday, May 12 ~
  • The Chase – 10 am
  • Black Angel – 7:30 pm
Following Black Angel will be an on-stage discussion with Richard Duryea, the son of Dan Duryea, who partners with June Vincent to find out who killed Duryea’s ex-wife, a murder that leads to the trial and conviction of Vincent’s husband.
