PROJECTING THE ARCHIVE Rediscovered British features WHO CAN YOU TRUST? 41 MON 6 NOV WED 29 NOV 18:15 NFT3 20:45 NFT1 WED 18 OCT 18:00 NFT1 + THIRD PARTY RISK UK 1954. Dir Daniel Birt. With Lloyd Bridges, Maureen Swanson, Finlay Currie. 68min. 35mm. U In the second part of this double bill, it’s the turn of Lloyd Bridges to have his holiday plans ruined when a trip to Spain to sample the local music sees him drawn him into the criminal underworld. JBo HAMMER DOUBLE-BILL: WHISPERING SMITH HITS LONDON + INTRO BY SCRIPT SUPERVISOR RENEE GLYNNE UK 1952. Dir Francis Searle. With Richard Carlson, Greta Gynt, Herbert Lom. 77min. 35mm. U Before Hammer reinvented the Gothic film, the studio spent several years dabbling in the thriller, often importing American actors to lend some authenticity to the hard-boiled protagonists. This double-bill of Hammer noir features two rarelyseen examples of the genre from the collection of the BFI National Archive. In the first, US sleuth Whispering Smith arrives in Blighty on vacation, but soon becomes embroiled in a murder case. JBo DRESSED TO KILL USA 1980. Dir Brian De Palma. With Nancy Allen, Michael Caine, Angie Dickinson. 104min. Digital. 18 A mysterious blonde murderer is on the loose and out to slay the only witness to her crime. De Palma’s grand psychosexual thriller is a masterclass in suspense, style and sleaze, with phenomenal set-pieces and a notorious twist ending. Love it or hate it, you can’t fail to have a strong reaction to this finely-tuned yet deeply problematic thriller. DE TALK INTRO #BFIThriller @BFI QUEER THRILLS 70min Murderous queers have terrorized poor straight folk in many a Hollywood movie, such as Silence of the Lambs (see p15), Basic Instinct and Dressed to Kill. Should we be enraged by the way cinema has played on (and amplified) homophobic and transphobic fears? Or can queer audiences reclaim these representations? Join us for a lively discussion where an assembled panel of speakers – and you – thrash this out. DE Free to ticket-holders of Dressed to Kill on Mon 6 Nov, but must be booked at the same time. Otherwise £6.50 MON 6 NOV 20:15 BFI REUBEN LIBRARY
