Detective Story

Buy Tickets


Double Feature with ACE IN THE HOLE

(1951) dir William Wyler w/Kirk Douglas, Eleanor Parker, William Bendix, Cathy O’Donnell [103 min; DCP]
A bravura performance by Kirk Douglas anchors this film noir tale, set at a police precinct, that takes places over the course of one day. Though the movie follows a few plot strands, Douglas is at the center as a driven, brutal detective whose overzealous pursuit of crime puts him at odds with his own wife.

“Detective Story is a hard-grained entertainment, not revealing but bruisingly real.” – Bosley Crowther, New York Times (11/7/1951)
