Night and the City
A film by Jules Dassin
Starring Richard Widmark, Gene Tierney, Googie Withers
Perhaps the most baroque and bleak film noir of them all.
American hustler Harry Fabian (Richard Widmark) pinballs through postwar London looking for his big score and ruining myriad lives in the process. The greatness of this film — besides Widmark’s devastating portrayal of a maniacal and pathetic loser — is its stubborn refusal to allow even the tiniest ray of light into Harry’s headlong descent in hell. Featuring Gene Tierney, Googie Withers, Herbert Lom, Francis X. Sullivan, Mike Mazurki — and perhaps the ultimate film noir finale.
