Feast Of Free Noir Movies

Australian readers of FilmsNoir.Net are in for a veritable feast of noir-related movies from the 20’s to the 50’s on free-to-air television in 2008.

I have discovered that the national public broadcaster, The ABC, has licensed packages of old movies, including the RKO film library, for late-night broadcast. These movies will be broadcast ad-free on the ABC masthead free-to-air service, which is available on three channels: analog, standard-definition digital, and high-definition digital.

Movies of interest to noir aficionados scheduled for screening over the next two weeks are listed below. All these movies (except Split Second ) are referenced in the Filmography of the seminal noir book, A Panorama of American Film Noir, 1941-1953. Check local program schedules for screening dates and times.

Hitchcock Triple-Feature:
The Lodger (1926)
