SHAKEDOWN (1950) in 35mm
Howard Duff is terrific as an unscrupulous "Weegee"-esque photographer in this slam-bang tabloid-style programmer, set entirely in 1950 San Francisco, shown in all its glory from skid row to Nob Hill. Duff's character, Jack Early, lives up to the film's original title, THE MAGNIFICENT HEEL. The cast includes Brian Donlevy, Peggy Dow and Lawrence Tierney at his sneering, sinister best. Don't blink, or you'll miss one of Rock Hudson's first screen appearances! (Note courtesy of Noir City.) DIR Joseph Pevney; SCR Martin Goldsmith, Alfred Lewis Levitt; PROD Ted Richmond. U.S., 1950, b&w, 80 min. NOT RATED
