Odds Against Tomorrow

Buy Tickets


(1959) dir Robert Wise w/Harry Belafonte, Robert Ryan, Shelley Winters, Ed Begley, Gloria Grahame [96 min; 35mm]
A corrupt ex-cop coerces a racist ex-con (Ryan) and a desperate gambling addict (Belafonte) into a bank robbery. When the job goes south, the two crooks wind up at each other’s throats and headed towards one of the most explosive climaxes in cinema history.

“A taut, downbeat, New York-shot bank heist thriller.” – Time Out

“Mr. Wise shot all his outdoor scenes in New York City and Hudson. N. Y., thus catching in, Joseph Brun’s fine camera the look of actuality. And from his excellent performers he got crisp and credible characters.” – Bosley Crowther, New York Times
