Newly re-mastered in HD! Two of Hollywood’s all-time favorite stars heat up the steamy streets of Manhattan in this tough and tender romance. Taken for granted by her Catholic Italian family, innocent Macy’s salesgirl Angie Rossini (Natalie Wood, West Side Story, Meteor) seeks solace in the arms of a charming and footloose jazz musician, Rocky Papasano (Steve McQueen, Junior Bonner, The Reivers). She becomes pregnant and doesn’t expect Rocky to marry her; she just needs his help to raise the money for an illegal abortion, while her family pressures her to marry gormless Anthony Columbo (Tom Bosley, Happy Days). This classic romantic comedy-drama was directed by Robert Mulligan (Summer of ‘42), produced by Alan J. Pakula (Inside Daisy Clover) and written by Arnold Schulman (Goodbye, Columbus) with top-notch cinematography by Milton R. Krasner (23 Paces to Baker Street) and a rousing score by Elmer Bernstein (Cast a Giant Shadow). Co-starring Edie Adams (The Honey Pot), Herschel Bernardi (Irma La Douce) and Harvey Lembeck (Stalag 17). Nominated for 5 Academy Awards® including Best Actress (Wood), Best Screenplay (Schulman), Cinematography (Krasner), Art Direction and Costume Design (Edith Head).
