The Naked City: The movie with 'eight million stories'
"Wanting too much. That's why she went wrong. Bright lights and theatres and furs and nightclubs. That's why she's dead now. Dear God, why wasn't she born ugly?"
'The Naked City', one of the very best films ever made in New York City, screens Tuesday night at the Museum of the City of New York, introduced by Julia Blaut, guest curator for the museum's latest photography exhibit 'Glorious Sky: Herbert Katzman's New York'.
Not only did this Jules Dassin crime caper set a standard for gritty realism, it presaged a generation of Manhattan based crime-based dramas.
You can find details on how to get tickets here. The screening is Tuesday, November 16, at 6:30pm.
