Adi Braun invites you to an hour of delicious and dangerous music from the era of the film noir. Let Marlene Dietrich wrap you in the arms of “The Blue Angel” (1931), Doris Day sing of Ruth Etting’s woes in “Love Me or Leave Me” (1955), be seduced by the haunting beauty of David Raksin’s melody “Laura” (1944), and taste the bittersweet reality of life in “Blues in the Night” (1941). Noir is filled with songs and repartee from this truly unique period in film-making where, as Fay Helm said in “Phantom Lady,” there are “no names, no addresses – just companions for the evening.”
