Violent Saturday

A film by Richard Fleischer
Starring Victor Mature, Sylvia Sidney, Lee Marvin

Film noir gets the lavish mid-Fifties treatment—vibrant color and Cinemascope—in this adaptation of W. B. Heath’s classic caper novel. Three strangers arrive in a small town with a plan to rob the local bank come the weekend. Their lives unexpectedly entwine with a number of the town’s residents during the run-up to the robbery. Victor Mature and Sylvia Sidney head a terrific cast that features Lee Marvin, Steven McNally and J. Carroll Naish as the criminal trio. It’s a ’50s soap opera with a crime thriller spine, and a vivid time-capsule of mid-Century Americana.
