Portland’s live soundtrack troupe is taking on something more American than apple pie and the super-bowl combined. Performing a new jazz soundtrack to accompany a classic film-noir, Filmusik’s jazz orchestra brings the work of local artists and composers to the movies for a show of bebop and gumshoes under the big screen at the the Hollywood Theatre.
KANSAS CITY CONFIDENTIAL is a hard-hitting film noir starring John Payne as Joe Rolfe, an ex-con who’s trying to go straight with a job as a deliveryman for a florist company. Unfortunately, a gang of thugs (the sinister trio of Jack Elam, Neville Brand, and Lee Van Cleef) led by a criminal mastermind (Preston Foster) have arranged a bank robbery using a van that looks just like the one driven by Rolfe–and the deliveryman takes the fall for the heist. This leads to Rolfe’s search for the real thieves, a trail that leads to Mexico and an unexpected love affair with the gang leader’s daughter (Coleen Gray).
