Night and the City screening
Sunday, May 7, 2017 @ 10:00–11:51$20
The Dryden will screen Night and the City (Jules Dassin, U.K./U.S. 1950, 111 min., format) as part of the Nitrate Picture Show.
"An exciting, suspenseful melodrama, . . . the story of a double-crossing heel who finally gets his just desserts. In this role, Richard Widmark scores a definite hit. And he has excellent support right down the line. Gene Tierney was cast for name value only. Jules Dassin, in his direction, manages extraordinarily interesting backgrounds, realistically filmed to create a feeling both of suspense and mounting menace." — Variety, December 31, 1949
