City that Never Sleeps

A film by John Auer
Starring Gig Young

Director John Auer brings to life the tale of a tempted young cop (Gig Young) tangled in a wed of corruption and vice. When an illegal job offer comes across his desk, all of his dreams finally seem within reach. Shot on location in Chicago during the bitter winter of 1952, this unique film is one of Martin Scorsese’s favorite “guilty pleasures.” Ultra-rare Chicago noir! Not on DVD!
