The Man with the Golden Arm

Part of The Films of Frank Sinatra
Sunday, August 21, 2011, 7:00 p.m.

35mm print restored by the Academy Film Archives with funding from the Film Foundation and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

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.

Free with Museum admission
