A classic

5 years ago at Feb 1 8:13
The beginning is quite confusing and it takes a while to take off. But both leads Tony Curtis and Burt Lancaster are just great. They play 2 of most slimy and conniving characters I have ever seen. The end is like a Greek tragedy. Definitely worth a look.

New York movies:The 100 best films set in New York (100 movies items)

"Deliciously lethal—like a “cookie full of arsenic”—this film adaptation of Ernest Lehman’s venomous novella about a megalomaniacal gossip columnist (Burt Lancaster) and a parasitic press agent (Tony Curtis) reveals New York’s fickle heart to be less candy-colored than bloody and pumping. Inspired by much-feared newspaperman Walter Winchell, the towering drama encapsulates the show-business spin that once went down after-hours in the booths of the ‘21’ Club and the upper floors of"
