I like San Francisco about as much as I don't like noir films. Which is to say, lots.

On Friday, January 20, 2012, at the Castro Theatre as part of the Noir City film festival, two noir movies will be screened which show in detail what some of San Francisco looked like in the middle of the twentieth century.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do about that, if anything.

"Dark Passage" (1947) has Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart, whom I like. "The House on Telegraph Hill" (1950) has what the festival blurb calls a classic "woman in peril" plot. I don't like those.

Hmm. . .
