(1957, Alexander Mackendrick) “Match me, Sidney,” barks Burt Lancaster’s Winchellesque gossip columnist J.J. Hunsecker to Tony Curtis’ sycophantic press agent Sidney Falco, even as cop Emile Meyer silkily demands, “Come here, Sidney, I want to chasTISE you,” in the portrait of Gotham’s rancid underside. DCP. Approx. 96 min.
