Aro Favourite They Live By Night


aka: w/ Side Street
USA 1948-1950, 95 + 82 minutes
Dir. Nicholas Ray, Anthony Mann
Genres: Classics / Film Noir


Aroview: Nicholas Ray's terrific, heartfelt tragi-noir fluctuates between high tension and sweet romance, underpinning the fate of criminal lovers Keechie and Bowie with poignancy and despair. See Robert Altman's THIEVES LIKE US for a latter adaptation of Edward Anderson's novel.

Also on the double-bill: SIDE STREET, Anthony Mann's minor classic about the knotty predicament of an opportunist whose loot attracts the attention of both cops and crooks. Farley Granger is again paired with the adorable Cathy O'Donnell.
