NIGHT AND THE CITY (1950)
Directed by Jules Dassin

Nitrate print!

Jules Dassin’s essential film noir opens with Harry Fabian, an expat, small-time American hustler, on the run through darkened London streets. In a real sense, Fabian, played by Richard Widmark with doom behind his eyes, never stops, lurching from one scam to the next, betting each new betrayal will get him out of the last. Director Jules Dassin uses London’s Blitz-scarred cityscape to accentuate the film’s fatalism.

Production/Distribution: Twentieth Century Productions, Ltd. Director: Jules Dassin. Producer: Samuel G. Engel. Based on the novel by Gerald Kersh. Screenwriter: Jo Eisinger. Cinematographer: Max Greene. Editor: Sidney Stone. Cast: Richard Widmark, Gene Tierney, Googie Withers, Hugh Marlowe, Francis L. Sullivan.
