The Turning Point

Double Feature with TRAPPED (7:30)

1952 • dir William Dieterle w/William Holden, Edmond O’Brien, Alexis Smith • 85 min • 35mm

In the early 1950s America’s obsession with organized crime was whetted by televised Congressional hearings, and Hollywood cashed in with a slew of ‘exposé’ films. Paramount took the high road with this star-studded thriller about crusading attorney John Conroy (O’Brien), who returns to his hometown to root out corruption. Will his childhood pal Jerry McKibbon (Holden), now a cynical reporter, be an ally or an adversary? And why does Conroy’s father (Begley), a veteran cop, not want to spearhead a criminal investigation? A rarity returned to circulation that, sadly, is timely once again. With a knockout finish that takes audiences completely by surprise.
