NOIR CITY presents its latest restoration, featuring two classic Woolrich stories. In “Someone’s on the Phone,” a man is compelled to solve the mystery of his sister’s unraveling life. In “The Hummingbird Comes Home,” a notorious crook returns to his boyhood home to lay low after a robbery. His blind madre doesn’t approve. Featuring the incredible cinematography of Pablo Tabernero, this is one of the best realizations of Woolrich ever, containing masterful sequences of suspense. Said critic Horacio Bernades, “Rarely has an Argentine film been more purely cinematic than this.”
In Spanish with English subtitles.
Digital restoration by the UCLA Film & Television Archive with funding by the Film Noir Foundation.
