TOUGH GUYS DON'T DANCE - as part of our 20th Annual Festival of Film Noir, double featured with BREATHLESS (1983)

Jul 25 & 26
Thu and Fri 3:00, 7:45pm

Dir. Norman Mailer - 1987 - 110m

THIS YEAR'S FILM NOIR FEST IS CURATED BY FILM/MEDIA ARCHIVIST (AND FORMER GUILD CINEMA CO-OWNER!) PETER CONHEIM OF CINEMA PRESERVATION ALLIANCE


BONUS!  Local Filmmaker and Film Educator TIM FORREST, fresh outta film and theatre school at Ohio State University, worked as a grip/lighting technician on the 1986 film in Provincetown MA to speak at the evening shows! There are some wild on-set stories fer sure!


Literary maven Norman Mailer directed a handful of films, and this is his weirdest, a brilliantly twisted New England noir that gives new meaning to the word “tawdry”, and stars Ryan O’Neal as an alcoholic writer who emerges from a blackout into a complex mystery of sleaze and crime.  Presented in an archival 35mm print!
