This review is from: New York Confidential [Import] (DVD)
Warner Bros. and Kit Parker Films presents "NEW YORK CONFIDENTIAL" (1955) --- (Dolby digitally remastered) --- The film at times is uneven but the brilliant performances of an outstanding cast is fascinating --- You could say this almost pure film noir with incredible power, usually revolving around Richard Conte, as the calculating cold hitman for hire --- Broderick Crawford's murderous planning is completely straight in a corporate boardroom, shows this audience it is business as usual in the underworld --- Anne Bancroft the rebellious daughter of Broderick Crawford who can't shake her fathers reputation as the leader of the mobs --- an extremely valuable entry in the film noir genre.

Under the production staff of:
Russell Rouse (Director)
Clarence Greene (Screenwriter)
