SIFF Cinema Egyptian | Noir City
Victor Mature stars as sports promoter Frankie Christopher, who after being wrongly accused of murdering an up-and-coming model escapes from custody (and a police inspector with a bone to pick) and hits the New York streets in search of the truth. Featuring Betty Grable in one of her few dramatic roles as the victim’s sister. An unjustly overlooked harbinger of the film noir movement.
