SIFF Cinema Egyptian | Noir City
In this noir classic, milquetoast cashier Christopher Cross (Edward G. Robinson) becomes an accidental hero when he rescues young Kitty March (Joan Bennett), from a would-be attacker. The sap doesn’t realize he’s stumbled upon a dust-up between a hooker and her pimp (Dan Duryea) and before long the devious duo is playing him for a prize chump. It can only end in tragedy.
