FILM: This year's Noir City, celebrating film noir from the days of yore, is titled "Films Black and White and Read All Over." Get it? This year's movies will be about death and intrigue in the newspaper industry. Which is fitting. Since the newspaper industry is dying. Allegedly. Heh. Anyway, Check out Alias Nick Beal (1949), about a district attorney on the rise who "loses his sense of morality once he starts associating with the shadowy and perhaps diabolical Nick Beal," which screens at 7:30 p.m. Following that, billed as "the raciest and raunchiest B noirs of the 1940s.", Night Editor (1946) is about a cop and his married socialite lover witness a murder while smooching in Lover’s Lane. The dame gets totally turned on by the brutal killing. Intrigue ensues.
