February 18 - In this classic 1947 example of the genre, Robert Mitchum plays a mountain-village gas station owner whose past as a big city private eye is about to catch up with him.

The term Film Noir was coined by French film critics to describe the darker, more cynical crime melodramas produced in the 1940s and 1950s by Hollywood directors such as Orson Welles, Fritz Lang, and Billy Wilder. Film Noir generally combines a cinematographic style and story line marked by a mood of pessimism, fatalism, and menace. The films in the series were selected from famed Film Noir writer Eddie Muller's topic pick list.

Complementary movie style popcorn, snacks and drinks will be available. For more information about the program, visit www.boisepubliclibrary.org/calendar, or call 972-8300. The Library! at Cole & Ustick is part of the Boise Public Library system, and is located at 7557 W. Ustick Road.
