People On Sunday 2010

Joint SUMMER SCHOOL of the UCLA Film School and the ifs internationale filmschule köln

The Films and Life of Robert Siodmak

Prof. Jan-Christopher Horak: Screening and close analysis of Cry of the City (1948), June 21, 2 pm – 4 pm.

After lunch, we screened Robert Siodmak’s CRY OF THE CITY (1948), starring Victor Mature. CITY is a film noir, but also a city film about New York. As we discovered, Siodmak actually remade a shot from PEOPLE ON SUNDAY in CRY OF THE CITY. A productive discussion followed about the film’s moral ambiguity, so unlike American classical Hollywood narrative and so much like German films from the 1920s.
