(1959, Robert Wise) Ex-cop Ed Begley masterminds a bank heist gone fatally wrong when racial tensions flare up between strapped-for-cash Jazzman Harry Belafonte and disaffected vet Robert Ryan. With Shelley Winters as Ryan’s ever-nagging wife and Noir icon Gloria Grahame. 35mm. Approx. 96 min.
“[Wise’s] noir masterpiece, a somber heist movie. This was the favorite film of Jean-Pierre Melville, who saw it 120 times before directing his noir masterwork Le deuxième souffle.”
– Philip French, The Guardian
“On one level, Odds Against Tomorrow is a taut crime melodrama. On another, it is an allegory about racism, greed and man's propensity for self-destruction.”
