‘A Double Life’ joins the Academy’s ‘Oscar Noir’ series

HollywoodNews.com: “A Double Life” (1947), the psychological drama from director George Cukor and writers Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin, will be screened as the next feature in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ series “Oscar Noir: 1940s Writing Nominees from Hollywood’s Dark Side” on Monday, August 16, at 7:30 p.m. at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater. The film will be introduced by Oscar®-winning screenwriter Marc Norman (“Shakespeare in Love”).

The film received four Academy Award® nominations, including Directing (Cukor) and Writing – Original Screenplay (Gordon and Kanin). Ronald Colman won a Best Actor Oscar for his change-of-pace role as an actor whose performance as Othello starts to affect his personal life, and Miklos Rozsa took home an Oscar for Music Score of a Dramatic or Comedy Picture.

At 7 p.m., the MGM Tex Avery cartoon short “Bad Luck Blackie” (1949) and “Captain Marvel’s Secret,” the final chapter from the 1941 serial “Adventures of Captain Marvel,” will be screened as part of the evening’s pre-feature program.

“Oscar Noir” is a summer-long series featuring 15 film noir classics from the 1940s, all of which were nominated in writing categories. Including “A Double Life,” there are three screenings remaining in the series.
