Too Late for Tears is a 1949 American film noir directed by Byron Haskin and starring Lizabeth Scott, Don DeFore, Dan Duryea and Arthur Kennedy. It tells a story about a woman who steals a suitcase of $60,000 and goes on a killing crime spree. The screenplay was written by Roy Huggins, developed from a serial he wrote for the Saturday Evening Post. The film was reissued as Killer Bait in 1955. Too Late for Tears has been in the public domain for many years; there are several different edits of the film with different running times. On January 25, 2014, a restored 35mm print was premiered by the Film Noir Foundation at Noir City 12 at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco. The film was restored by UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Film Noir Foundation. The restoration combined 35mm dupe negative elements from France with some material from surviving prints. No Blu-ray release has been announced.
