Film details

With Night and the City, Jules Dassin delivers a moody, tense, London-set film noir. Richard Widmark is striking as Harry Fabian, a low-level hustler always on the lookout for easy money.

The film’s atmosphere benefits greatly from being shot on location in England. The director was blacklisted during the shooting of the film and not allowed to work on some of the post-production.
