Dir. Otto Preminger. 1955, 119 mins.

With Kim Novak. A singularly audacious film about drug addiction, this riveting drama stars Sinatra as a junkie card dealer adrift in a world of menacing archetypes and boldly stylized sets. To the pulse of Elmer Bernstein’s jazz score, Preminger’s direction is perfectly pitched between expressionism and realism.
