Friday Film Discussions via ZOOM (Registration)

Friday, November 6

3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Watch the film at your leisure – stream on Hoopla, Kanopy or Overdrive, or borrow a DVD from the library.  Afterwards we will come together via Zoom to discuss the film on Friday afternoons.

Today’s film: “Lured” 1947 ‧ Noir/Thriller ‧ 1h 43m – available on Kanopy here

“In this sumptuous thriller by legendary filmmaker Douglas Sirk and featuring a bevy of classic stars of the silver screen, a serial killer is on the loose in London, luring young women into his web through ads placed in the personal column.  Scotland Yard’s bait to ensnare the villain is a young American dance hall girl (played by a stunning Lucille Ball), who encounters a series of likely suspects, including the always dashing George Sanders as a sophisticated playboy and an unforgettable Boris Karloff as a mad fashion designer.”

Restored from 35MM nitrate and safety material.

“What could have been merely a diverting whodunit becomes, in Sirk’s hands, an atmospheric, sensuous pleasure.” – Entertainment Weekly
