Sweet Smell of Success

Dir. Alexander Mackendrick (1957). Part inside snide, part self-righteous exposé, this show biz melodrama defines a particular urban style. The bitter bon mots, jazz-inflected score, and tabloids treated as messages from on high, all amplify Tony Curtis’s hectic performance as an ambitious flack in the Kingdom of Dreadful Night ruled by a monstrous corpse—gossip columnist Burt Lancaster.
Sat., May 1, 1:30, 3:30, 5:40, 7:50 & 9:50 p.m., 2010
