(1949, Robert Siodmak) When honest armored car guard Burt Lancaster is caught with Yvonne De Carlo by new hubby Dan Duryea, his only choice is to go through with his explanation: to hold up his own truck. U.S. premiere of new 4K restoration and 35mm at select screenings. Approx. 84 min.
– Richard Brody, The New Yorker
“You have Siodmak as one of the great natural noir directors and the clearest diagnosis of Burt Lancaster anyone would ever make.”
– David Thomson
“A wonderfully seedy tale, beautifully shot and scripted… As always with Siodmak, the suspense is maintained throughout by taut pacing, visual precision and excellent characterization.”
– Geoff Andrew, Time Out (London)
