NOIR CITY 19: They Tried to Warn Us! ODDS AGAINST TOMORROW
7:00
ODDS AGAINST TOMORROW

1959, United Artists [Park Circus]. 96 minutes
Screenplay by Abraham Polonsky, with Nelson Gidding (fronted by John O. Killens)
Based on the novel by William P. McGivern
Produced by Harry Belafonte (uncredited) and Robert Wise
Directed by Robert Wise

Disgraced ex-cop Dave Burke (Ed Begley) masterminds a piece-of-cake bank robbery in upstate New York, but to pull it off he requires the cooperation of two dangerously mismatched cohorts: hot-headed redneck war veteran Earle Slater (Robert Ryan) and gambling addict jazzman Johnny Ingram (Harry Belafonte). Their racist antagonism threatens to thwart a seemingly foolproof plan. Silent producer Belafonte hired blacklisted screenwriter Abraham Polonsky to adapt William P. McGivern's novel, specifically to subvert the sanctimony of The Defiant Ones (1958), a "feel-good" movie about racism. Robert Wise's direction is as fresh and expressive as anything being done by the French New Wave of the period, and the score by John Lewis's Modern Jazz Quartet is innovative and exhilarating. With vivid supporting performances by Shelley Winters, Kim Hamilton, and Gloria Grahame. An all-time classic heist thriller, and much more.
