Barry's Film Noir You Should See: Night and the City

2:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Central Library in Copley Square


Local professor Barry Marshall will screen and discuss Night and the City (1950), in which a small-time grifter and nightclub tout takes advantage of some fortuitous circumstances and tries to become a big-time player as a wrestling promoter. This film is considered one of the best hybrids of British and American noir.
