Pulp Fiction Thursday: Repeat Performance

While searching for NYE related material, I stumbled upon Repeat Performance at classicfilmchat.com. It’s a film noir that I’ve yet to see but this description is enticing:

It stars Joan Leslie, Louis Hayward, and Virginia Field and features Richard Baseheart, Tom Conway, and Natalie Schafer.  It’s film noir (with a touch of fantasy) about a lot of unpleasant people in the theatahhh in New York.

The story opens with murder, and when the star wishes she could live the year over again she is, of course, magically able to.  But she discovers the results frightening.

We don’t want to give away any of the intricate plot points.  Just take our word for it. It’s a unique take on New Year’s resolutions.  It’s a true classic

At the risk of repeating my performance, it sounds enticing. We begin with the poster:

Holy smoking gun, Batman.

It’s lobby card time:

The trailer isn’t online BUT Eddie Mueller’s Noir Alley introduction is:

How the hell did I miss that? I am a sinner in the church of the Noir Czar.
