The CFPL Iowa Author Series presents a feature-length showing of the critically-acclaimed Film Noir classic--“Gun Crazy” (1949),  with commentary by Dr. Grant Tracey, Professor of Film Studies, Creative Writing and Popular Culture @ The University of Northern Iowa.

Dr. Tracey will explore the film’s Iowa connection to writer MacKinlay Kantor, how Hollywood gangster films of the 1940’s/50’s satisfied thrill-seeking audiences, how Film Noir became the perfect vehicle for transferring detective novels to the screen and, finally, how the “Femme Fatale” lured law-abiding citizens into a life of crime.

Join us in the large meeting room for a classic taste of Film Noir as well as cinnamon rolls and orange juice.  This program was made possible by Friends of the Cedar Falls Public Library.
