Screenplay by Chester Erskine, from the play by Arthur Miller
Produced by Chester Erskine
Directed by Irving Reis
Edward G. Robinson gives one of his most affecting performances as successful businessman Joe Keller, grappling with guilt over having framed his business partner for a crime he committed. When his son (Burt Lancaster) becomes engaged to the convicted man's daughter, the sins of the past come hurtling back. Reis and writer-producer Chester Erskine, aided by the noir-stained cinematography of Russell Metty, create a powerful (and inexplicably rare) version of Arthur Miller's Tony Award-winning play. First time at NOIR CITY!
