(1961) dir Allen Baron w/Allen Baron, Molly McCarthy, Larry Tucker, Peter Clune [77 min; 35mm]
This low-budget, carefully crafted portrait of a hit man on assignment in Manhattan during Christmastime follows its stripped-down narrative with mechanical precision, yet also with an eye and ear for the oddball idiosyncrasies of urban living and the imposing beauty of the city. – Criterion Collection

“This compact and forceful low-budget film noir … compresses a week in a hit man’s bitter life into a dazzlingly brisk yet richly nuanced seventy-seven minutes.” – Richard Brody, New Yorker
