It’s The Fabulous Fifties On LRPA After Dark

During The Month Of July

This Weekend’s Feature: 1953’s “The Limping Man”

 

Throughout July, Lakes Region Public Access Television will feature four films from the fabulous 50’s, a decade known in cinema, for many things, including the end of the Hollywood musical; the “Red Scare” and blacklisting of screenwriters; film noir standouts; and Cold War/atomic panic. Join us each Friday and Saturday night at 10:30 p.m. as we salute this remarkable decade. This weekend (July 13 & 14) we’ll show 1953’s rarely seen British noir-ish crime drama The Limping Man, starring Lloyd Bridges, Moira Lister and Alan Wheatley. This film was directed by American screenwriter and author Cy Endfield under the pseudonym of “Charles de Lautour.” Endfield was an associate of Orson Welles and worked with him at Mercury Productions. In 1951, Endfield was named as a Communist by the House Un-American Activities Committee. After being blacklisted in Hollywood, Endfield moved to Britain and continued to work on films, many of which were noir-ish in nature. His most famous film may be the 1964 British war saga “Zulu.” Of “The Limping Man,” a reviewer wrote: “This film has more twists and turns than a roller coaster – and you’ll love every minute of it!” So grab your popcorn and meet us after dark for this surprising noir thriller crime thriller from the past.

 

Mark your calendars for all of July’s Fabulous Fifties Films:

July 20 & 21: 1950’s Panic in the Streets 

July 27 & 28: 1957’s Attack of the Crab Monsters
