Night and the City (1950), directed by Jules Dassin and starring Richard Widmark, is the compelling story of a hoodlum on the make in postwar London. Andrew Pulver's study of the film traces the film's production history and places it in the context of British film noir and the urban mythology of its West End setting.
Andrew Pulver writes this book with the voice of someone who knows his subject. Pulver is the Film Editor for The Guardian newspaper and makes a very interesting read from the outset. The book is well illustrated and annotated throughout and splits his book into suitable chapters. He never losses sight of the original novel and draws comparisons on it several times throughout the book.' Filmwerk
