The Crimson Kimono

(1959 / dir. by Samuel Fuller / 98 minutes)

Sunday, November 19, 7:00 pm / CERIA 365

Sam Fuller became a crime reporter for the New York Evening Graphic at the age of 17 and earned the Bronze Star, the Silver Star, and the Purple Heart for his military service in Africa, Sicily, Normandy, Belgium, and Czechoslovakia during World War II. Beloved by the directors of the French New Wave for the verve of his pulpy, low-budget films, he directed with the eye of a newspaperman for working class stories at society’s fringes. There’s never a dull moment in Fuller’s movies, and The Crimson Kimono is both a testament to the beauty of Los Angeles and a whip-smart, clear-eyed investigation of the American experiment.

The seventh in a series of historically significant (and always entertaining) film classics, screened every other weekend throughout the semester.

Free and open to all UNM students.
