Edgar G. Ulmer’s Detour (featured in the most recent edition of Cinema Revival) is often referred to as the greatest B movie ever made. Here’s a chance to catch up with two of Ulmer’s lesser-known films.
In Damaged Lives, a young shipping tycoon comes down with a nasty case of VD after a night on the town and unwittingly passes it along to his innocent fiancée. (61 mins., DCP) Preceded by the animated short Dancing on the Moon. (8 mins., DCP)
A Poverty Row spin on Hamlet, Strange Illusion follows a young psychiatric patient who is tormented by dreams of his mother being seduced by a wolfish stranger (played to the hilt by Pre-Code icon Warren William). (87 mins., DCP). Preceded by the Betty Boop cartoon Grampy’s Indoor Outing (7 mins., DCP).
