Night and the City

Before he met Melina Mercouri and became an Artist, Jules Dassin made a number of worthwhile thrillers as a Hollywood contract director. This 1950 film noir, filmed in a London artfully relit to resemble the Lower East Side, stars Richard Widmark as an American lowlife on the lam from an anglicized mob.
