Odds Against Tomorrow

Dir. Robert Wise (1959). This character-driven caper film—directed by Robert Wise and produced by its star, Harry Belafonte, has an unusual, and strikingly pessimistic, racial angle, particularly for 1959. Turns out that the script was written by blacklisted Abraham Polonsky with black novelist John O. Killens as his front.
