Omschrijving Night and the City (Limited Edition Bluray) (geen NL ondertiteling!) - :
Adapted from Gerald Kersh's classic crime novel, Night and the City is a consummate Film Noir classic which presents a fevered and paranoid vision of London by night - a city still shattered and skeletal from wartime bombing. Richard Widmark stars as Harry Fabian, a small-time spiv with big dreams who worms his way into the dangerous world of wrestling rackets, and who comes into conflict with a vengeful club owner (Francis Sullivan) and a tough gangster (Herbert Lom). Harry's long-suffering girlfriend (Gene Tierney) tries to save him - but can Harry outrun his fate? Compellingly directed by twice ACADEMY AWARD® Nominee* Jules Dassin (at the time under suspicion in Hollywood for his political beliefs), Night and the City has been celebrated for its uncompromising, bleak portrayal or urban life, its array of unsympathetic characters and its expressionist visual style.
