PICK UP ON SOUTH STREET
September 24 only
A Fuller Life
Criticized at the time for its exceptional level of violence, this has become one of the director’s most cherished films. A pickpocket and a prostitute become inadvertently entangled with Communist spies over the whereabouts of a valuable piece of microfilm. Often mistaken for an anti-Commie screed, this is, in fact one of the 1950s most potent examples of film noir. Starring Richard Widmark, Jean Peters, Thelma Ritter, Richard Kiley. Elegantly photographed by Joe MacDonald. Written and directed by Samuel Fuller. In Black & White. DCP. 80 mins. 1953. USA.
