as part of Classics Night
1956, directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Noir at its best. Returning at dawn to Jackson Heights, Stork Club bass player Henry Fonda finds himself trapped in a classic mistaken identity case. Shot in ruthlessly restrained semi-doc style on the locations of the actual case, with harrowing sequences of Fonda’s booking and arraignment, and memorable innocent-to-guilty dissolve. (Film Forum).
