Odds Against Tomorrow

Odds Against Tomorrow

A FILM BY: Robert Wise
WRITTEN BY: Abraham Polonsky
STARRING: Harry Belafonte, Robert Ryan, Gloria Grahame

Double Feature ticket option includes admission to CRY TOUGH

One of the tersest, tensest heist movies ever made is also an angry (and still timely) riff on race relations in America, predating the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s. A trio of desperate men (Harry Belafonte, Robert Ryan and Ed Begley) plan a last-ditch bank robbery in upstate New York. But Ryan's bigotry and Belafonte's take-no-prisoners pride keeps the tension simmering—leading to an explosive climax. Wise's direction is crisp and cutting edge—a huge inspiration to French noir master Jean-Pierre Melville. Gloria Grahame and Shelley Winters offer kinky and melancholy support, respectively. A late-cycle film noir masterpiece, highlighted by an inventive score from John Lewis and the Modern Jazz Quartet.

ODDS AGAINST TOMORROW is presented on Blu-Ray at the request of the Film Noir Foundation as the only available 35mm print is in poor condition
