Cry of the City
Directed by Robert Siodmak
Cry of the City
Brand New 2K Restoration! In this gritty film noir, two childhood best friends take divergent paths; one becomes a cop and the other a violent criminal. Martin Rome (Richard Conte, Thieves’ Highway), a cop killer and jewel thief escapes from prison with two police detectives, Lt. Candella (Victor Mature, After the Fox) and Lt. Collins (Fred Clark, Daddy Long Legs) hot on his trail. Not only is Rome wanted for murder, but also accused of masterminding a major jewel heist. On the run, Rome is helped by his sleazy lawyer and two girlfriends, Teena (Debra Paget, Broken Arrow) and Brenda (Shelley Winters, He Ran All the Way)… his plan is to recover the hidden gems and leave the country before his childhood friend (Mature) and partner catches up with him. From Robert Siodmak, the director of The Killers, Criss Cross and The Spiral Staircase.
"It gets a top recommendation as a noir thriller, with characters and situations so good, no excuses need to be made for the film’s age."
"It’s a package well worth checking out, and a film that’s a solid entry in Siodmak’s well-respected filmography."
