  • Holyphool's rating of the film The Midnight Story

    Compelling, emotional B-noir in b/w cinemascope with neo-realist trappings as Tony Curtis goes undercover after the brutal slaying of a Catholic priest within an Italian family. Gilbert Roland as the kindly friend is the suspect and is superb, almost convincing us of his innocence. Pse post a still from the film Mubi that is not as black as midnight. The film deserves an image of its own!
