Before his career was cut short by the Hollywood blacklist and a fatal heart condition, John Garfield (The Postman Always Rings TwiceBody and Soul) gave his final, chilling performance as a criminal wracked with paranoia. John Berry’s subtle, doom-laden noir follows a petty thief (Garfield) who takes a young, smitten girl (Shelley Winters) and her family hostage after a heist goes wrong. Garfield was a target of the House Un-American Activities Committee during its investigation of Communists in the entertainment industry, and his restive protagonist in He Ran All the Way is almost too real—a sweaty, desperate outsider masterminding his escape from the law.

Screening with: A Day in the Country / Partie de campagne Jean Renoir, France, 1936, 35mm, 40m French with English subtitles Based on a short story by Guy de Maupassant, Jean Renoir’s touching featurette chronicles a single afternoon during which a mother and daughter picnic with two fishermen in the French countryside. Resplendent with idyllic images and attentive to complex internal psychology in a way that few feature-length films can manage, A Day in the Country is considered a small masterpiece in Renoir’s filmography. It’s a filmic poem that perfectly blends the naturalism of Maupassant’s prose with the director’s singular approach to impressionism. Print courtesy of the Institut Francais.
