Woman on the Run

USA | 1950 | 77 minutes | Norman Foster

SIFF Cinema Egyptian | Noir City
This poignant tale of love and marriage is almost a breakneck thriller, as a dissatisfied wife (Ann Sheridan) hunts down her husband-in-hiding after he witnesses a gangland murder. Orson Welles protégé Norman Foster draws evocative performances from the entire cast, including San Francisco itself, in its mid-20th century blue-collar glory. Restored 35mm print courtesy of the Film Noir Foundation.
