50th Anniversary!

The Pawnbroker

United States | 1964 | Sidney Lumet

The Pawnbroker

Rod Steiger, in the role that made him an A-list movie star, plays a benumbed, emotionally withdrawn concentration camp survivor who runs a pawnshop in a rough section of Harlem. Sidney Lumet’s powerful film (which contains flashes of nudity) pushed the limits of 1964’s Motion Picture Production Code; in 2008 the movie was selected for the Library of Congress’s National Film Registry. With Geraldine Fitzgerald, Brock Peters, and Raymond St. Jacques; music by Quincy Jones.

116 min. 35mm print from Paramount Pictures.
