Cry of the City

Rated NR 95 minutes 1948

Atmosphere is everything in this 1948 remake of Manhattan Melodrama, with Victor Mature and Richard Conte replacing William Powell and Clark Gable as the two slum pals who grow up on opposite sides of the law. Director Robert Siodmak was in many ways the reference point for film noir in the 40s; his films may lack a lasting impact, but his style was one of the most striking and effective in the history of movies.
