Film Noir: The Big Clock


July 8, 2012

Please join us on Sunday, July 8 at 2 p.m. for John Farrow's The Big Clock (1948, 95 min) on the sixth floor of the Mid-Manhattan Library.

Film Noir is part of Mystery Summer and a full schedule is available online at: All screenings are FREE and seating is first-come, first-served.

"The Big Clock generally comes off as a prototypical effort from within the film noir genre—yet there's no denying that the movie possesses a surprisingly contemporary vibe. The brisk pace and darkly comedic script certainly go a long way towards cementing this feeling, while Milland effectively steps into the shoes of an increasingly frantic figure..." —David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
