[The Window]

The Window was presented as a part of a noir afternoon at the festival, and I wish I would have realized that earlier; I would have gone to the one preceeding it as well.

The story centers on a young boy (back in the good old days when you could "traumatize children" on film) who witnesses a murder, but as he has a history of an overactive imagination & storytelling, no one believes him ... except the murderers. The child star, Bobby Driscoll, was given a miniature special Oscar for his work, and it was quite well-deserved.

They screened a gorgeous new print from the Film Noir Foundation, and it was very cool to see with an audience full of vocal reactions.
