Kennington Noir Presents Raw Deal (1948) Thu 3rd Nov 19:30

Sinister and violent; dark and sensual, Raw Deal (1948) was the second collaboration between director Anthony Mann and cinematographer John Alton, a Hungarian émigré who shot many wonderfully atmospheric features in the 1940s and 1950s and whose book, Painting With Light, remains a classic cinematography lighting reference. Add to that a strong cast and an unusual female voiceover, and we have a real treat for fans of classic noir.
The feature will be introduced by Kulraj Phullar, who is currently completing his PhD onGood Girls and Goodness in Classic Hollywood Film Noir at King’s College London. The first half of the programme will comprise a selection of short cinematic treats from 1948, courtesy of The Dave Locke Archive.
