Screening: Dragnet (1954).

Directed by Jack Webb
Starring Jack Webb, Ben Alexander, Richard Boone, Ann Robinson, Stacy Harris, Virginia Gregg, Victor Perrin, Georgia Ellis, James Griffith, Dub Taylor

Noir City: Hollywood – The 20th Annual Los Angeles Festival Of Film Noir is presenting one of my all-time favorite films on the 18th, Jack Webb’s 1954 feature version of Dragnet. I can’t tell you how much I love this movie. The DVD is a rather ugly, full-frame mess, making the chance to see it on the big screen, on film, an even greater treat. And Ann Robinson, who plays a lady officer, will be there for a discussion after the movie.

Wednesday, April 18, 7:30pm
Egyptian Theatre

And if Dragnet wasn’t cool enough, the festival’s also got Armored Car Robbery (1950) in its lineup on the 16th. Another one of those times when I live on the wrong side of the country.

    Saw this in Chicago last year on a double bill with L.A. CONFIDENTIAL, both in 35mm. I had seen it on television several times, but it looks great on the big screen (and it’s a terrific movie, as is ARMORED CAR ROBBERY, which I didn’t see when it played in Chicago).

    I caught the tail end of a Lawrence Welk episode on PBS yesterday and there was Dick Cathcart and all I wanted to do was watch Dragnet (1954).
