Cry of the City

Opens on June 9

Director: Robert Siodmak Run Time: 95 min. Format: DCP Release Year: 1948

Starring: Fred Clark, Richard Conte, Shelley Winters, Victor Mature

Introduction by Film Noir Foundation’s Foster Hirsch!

Perhaps the most perfectly realized, thematically and stylistically, of all Siodmak’s noir films. Victor Mature is the lawman and Richard Conte the fugitive crook he pursues across Manhattan with tragic results. Shot entirely on location, Siodmak skips the semi-documentary vogue of the day, creating instead an Expressionistic urban landscape ideally suited to this mythic mid-20th-century tale of good and evil. Brattle Debut! 

Double Feature with THE NAKED CITY
