Tickets for all Dangerous Dames screenings are free and are only available in person from GFT box office on the day of the screening.
Film noir’s mean city streets were home to some of the roughest, toughest characters in Hollywood history and most of them were women. Dangerous Dames salutes the performers who effortlessly proved that the female is deadlier than the male. Post-war thrillers provided a perfect showcase for some of cinema’s greatest performers to tear into fantastic roles as powerful, conniving women who always thought the crime might be worth the punishment. The 2017 GFF retrospective features an irresistible rogue’s gallery that ranges from an Oscar-nominated Gene Tierney’s fiercesome display of jealousy to Lana Turner in the definitive version of The Postman Always Rings Twice and Kathleen Turner’s unforgettably steamy neo-noir debut. All the Dangerous Dames morning matinees are absolutely free so slip into that trench coat, step out of the shadows and put these dates in your diary. It would be criminal to miss them.
