HFPA-Funded Restored Films To Be Shown on TCM's Summer of Darkness

by HFPA June 2, 2015

Two classic movies which were restored with HFPA funds will be shown on Turner Classic Movies on Fridays during June and July as part of the network's Summer of Darkness film noir festival. The "festival of film noir" will run for 24 hours each Friday, June 5 - July 24, 2015. The restored movies are 1950's Woman on the Run which starred Ann Sheridan as a woman who must track down and find her husband before a killer does and Too Late for Tears from 1949 in which Lizabeth Scott plays a woman who kills her husband and plots with a private eye (Dan Duryea) after someone tosses a bag of money into her car. The two films were restored by the Film Noir Foundation and were funded in full and in part, respectively, by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association which donated $75,000 towards the projects. Summer of Darkness will be hosted by the Film Noir Foundation's Eddie Muller, who will introduce 36 of his selected noir films during prime time.
