Night and the City
  • Description

    Adapted from the lowlife novel of the same name, Night and the City was directed by the twice Academy Award-nominated Jules Dassin and stars Richard Widmark as Harry Fabian, an ambitious American hustler who dreams of getting into the wrestling business in post-war London.

    The film was at the centre of a controversy when its director, Jules Dassin, was added to the Hollywood blacklist during the production of the film, and was unable to oversee either the editing or music score.

    Upon initial release the film was overlooked by critics but was re-evaluated in the 1960s when it was celebrated for its ground-breaking lack of sympathetic characters and finally recognised as a baroque masterpiece of corruption, paranoia and doom.

    Extras:

    • Includes both the US and the previously unseen British version of the film
    • Original theatrical trailer
    • Audio commentary on the US release by Paul Duncan
    • New audio commentary  on the British version by film critic Adrian Martin
    • The Guardian Lecture: Jules Dassin interviewed by film critic Alexander Walker (1981)
    • Actor Richard Widmark interviewed at the National Film Theatre in 2002 by Adrian Wootton

    Cast and Crew:

    Director: Jules Dassin (Rififi, Never on Sunday, The Naked City)

    Cast: Richard Widmark (Kiss of Death), Gene Tierney (Leave Her to Heaven), Googie Withers (The Lady Vanishes, Shine)
