‘Suspense’ screening Oct. 15

News October 14, 2013 0 Comments

The Chestnut Hill Film Group’s “Tuesday Nights at the Movies” continues Oct. 15 with the 1946 film noir, “Suspense.”

“Suspense” follows Frank Leonard, the proprietor of an ice-skating revue, and his wife Roberta, the star of the show’s main act. When a shady peanut-vendor named Joe Morgan makes suggestions to improve the main act, Leonard promotes him to a management position. The plot deepens when Leonard suspects that Morgan is not only moving in on his business, but also his wife. Later on, things get stranger when Leonard is found dead.

The film is directed by Frank Tuttle and stars Barry Sullivan as Joe Morgan, Albert Dekker as Frank Leonard and former Olympic skater Belita as Roberta. It was released by the now defunct Monogram Pictures, and its 1.1 million dollar budget was one of the most expensive at the time.

The movie begins at 7 p.m. at Woodmere Art Museum. Doors open at 6:30. Admission is free, although donations are recommended.
