The Big Combo

Noir Town
United States | 1955 | Joseph H. Lewis

The Big Combo

The other great noir by Gun Crazy director Joseph H. Lewis is one of the most brutal, perverse, and sexually charged of classic crime films. It tells of a cop (Cornel Wilde) who’s absolutely obsessed with bringing down a sadistic mob boss (Richard Conte) and stealing his classy girlfriend. John Alton’s b&w cinematography, which demonstrates his mastery of chiaroscuro, should sparkle in the preservation print courtesy of the UCLA Film & Television Archive that we will show. Preservation funding provided by The Film Foundation.
