CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS (1953)

Introduced by Eddie Muller on Oct. 15

Cop Johnny Kelly (Gig Young) has had enough of Chicago, in both the mean streets and on the chilly domestic front. He'd run off with his exotic dancer girlfriend Angel Face (Mala Powers) if he could only get his hands on enough scratch to stake them to a new start. Thus begins one long, fantastical night in the Windy City, where saints and sinners collide in a pile-up of crimes, and Johnny's dreams and nightmares all come true. This noir oddity, narrated by The City itself, is a low-rent masterpiece of "B"-moviemaking, evocatively shot by PSYCHO's John L. Russell and featuring a stellar cast headed by noir favorites Marie Windsor and William Talman, with Wally Cassell as the unforgettable "Mechanical Man." (Note courtesy of Noir City.) DIR/PROD John H. Auer; SCR Steve Fisher. U.S., 1953, b&w, 90 min. NOT RATED
