IA #71: Too Late for Tears (1949)

 Too Late for Tears (1949) on IMDb

You’re never too far from a film noir classic in the Internet Archive Top 100, and Too Late for Tears is another fine example. It stars Lizabeth Scott as the femme fatale who doesn’t react well when $60,000 falls in her lap (actually in the back seat of her convertible), especially in dealing with her husband and the other men who want that cash.

This movie was significant enough that it was restored by the Film Noir Foundation. The restored print was shown in January 2014 at San Francisco’s Noir City film festival. You can read the full story of that effort at Turner Classic Movies.
