DETECTIVE STORY

Sunday, January 26

1:40

(1951, William Wyler) 24 hours in the life of NYC’s “21st” Precinct, with super-righteous cop Kirk Douglas routinely strong-arming suspects, especially his wife’s ex – “doctor” George Macready. Wyler’s mostly single-set direction piles on the claustrophobic tension. With William Bendix and Lee Grant, in Oscar-nominated/Cannes-winning role as a shoplifter. DCP. Approx. 103 min.
