Two-bit hustler Harry Fabian (Richard Widmark) aches for a life of ease and plenty. Trailed by an inglorious history of go-nowhere schemes, he stumbles upon a chance of a lifetime in the form of legendary wrestler Gregorius the Great (Stanislaus Zbyszko). But there is no easy money in this underworld of shifting alliances, bottomless graft, and pummeled flesh––and Fabian soon learns the horrible price of his ambition. Luminously shot in the streets of London, Jules Dassin’s Night and the City is film noir of the first order and one of the director’s crowning achievements. —The Criterion Collection

"Richard Widmark osaa näytellä liukkaan huijarin epätoivoista kujanjuoksua, Lontoo on virkistävä tapahtumapaikka, raavaat äijänjärkäleet karhunhalaa aina hautaan asti ja niin edespäin ja niin edespäin."

Slant’s 100 Best Film Noirs of All Time (100 movies items)

"In Jules Dassin’s unorthodox noir Night and the City, Harry Fabian (Richard Widmark) is a snipe without a career plan, an “artist without an art,” as one character states early on, whose hustling of tourists and quick-cash schemes result in widespread disdain at even a mention of the character’s name, most notably among his former business partner (Francis L. Sullivan) and sometime lover (Gene Tierney). Dassin is interested in Fabian as an idea, as a point of contention for contemplating"

"A noir that's too light to fully appreciate the genre flick. The performances are a little tough to take in at first; but thankfully it all gets better second act."

"Jules Dassin noir classic doesn't hold up really well; but has some memorable scenes with Widmark and Thierney making a great team in what is one of Scorsese's favorite films."
