Pictured is an 11" x 14" US lobby card #5 showing Gene Tierney as Mary
Bristol and Googie Withers as Helen Nosseross in a scene from the 1950
Jules Dassin film Night and the City based on the novel by
Gerald Kersh, screenplay by Joe Eisinger and starring Richard Widmark
as Harry Fabian. Plot summary: In its day film critics were not
appreciative of this film, but it later became recognized as a seminal
work of film noir. In Street with No Name: A History of the
Classic American Film Noir Andrew Dickos said "in a perfect fusion
of mood and character, Dassin created a work of emotional power and
existential drama that stands as a paradigm of noir pathos and
despair." The film is set in London and tracks the rise and fall of
Harry Fabian, an ambitious grifter who has an unstable relationship
with an honest nightclub owner named Mary Bristol. In an attempt to
improve his financial situation Fabian opens a gym where he supports
professional wrestlers; he soon gets into conflict with underworld
competitors who put a reward on his head.
