Still image from the film Out of the Past
Setting nearly every standard of the film noir genre, Jacques Tourneur's thriller brims with danger and deceit. Robert Mitchum plays Jeff Bailey, a former private eye living a quiet life in a small town. When his past catches up with him, Bailey is pulled back into a world of blackmail, double-crossing and cold-blooded murder ruled by gangster boss Sterling (Kirk Douglas) and his moll Kathie (Jane Greer in an unforgettable take on the femme fatale). Over six decades later, the plot twists and stark visual style typical to the genre still keep audiences riveted until the last frame. (35mm presentation)
