Film Details

JazzFilmFest, Pre-film Garden Party

The Man with the Golden Arm

United States | 1955 | Otto Preminger

The Man with the Golden Arm

Frank Sinatra and Kim Novak star in Otto Preminger's jazz-infused drama, about a drummer and ex-addict who licks his heroin habit in prison but struggles to stay clean on the outside. The movie’s focus on drug addiction (a taboo subject in 1955) caused the film to be denied a seal of approval by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). Music by Elmer Bernstein.

119 min. Restored 35mm Archive Print!

Restored by the Academy Film Archive with funding from the Film Foundation and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Special thanks to Vicky Preminger and Cassie Blake. A pre-film “garden party” with refreshments and live jazz, open to all ticket holders, will take place in the Cleveland Institute of Art’s outdoor courtyard from 5:30-6:45pm, weather permitting. Musicians appear courtesy of the Tri-C JazzFest.
