(1947) Jacques Tournier's "Out of the Past" is considered by many as one of the greatest film noirs ever made, due to its complicated, dark storyline, dark cinematography and classic femme fatale. A private eye (Robert Mitchum) escapes his past to run a gas station in a small town, but his past catches up with him. Now he must return to the big city world of danger, corruption, double crosses and duplicitous dames. With Jane Greer and Kirk Douglas.
SPECIAL NOTE: Since we're screening on a Monday, the posse is planning to meet at Matt Murphy's at 5:00 PM for drinks and FREE OYSTERS. It's a short walk from the screening: at 14 Harvard St in Brookline Village. They serve free oysters from 5-7 PM on Mondays. Try to get there before 6 PM when it starts filling up for dinner (or RSVP to David and we'll hold a seat for you). A great little bar and well worth the trip.
