    Description

    Johnny O'Clock (Columbia, 1947). Insert (14" X 36"). Dick Powell, who reinvented his career in the 1940s after playing leading men in the 1930s, plays a gambler and gangster who must find out who murdered a corrupt cop while avoiding his gambling partner who wants to kill him. This gritty and seedy thriller was Robert Rossen's first effort at direction. Rossen would go on to direct "Body and Soul" as well as "The Hustler". Dick Powell, along with Robert Mitchum, would go on to define the loner that would typify almost every protagonist of the film noir genre. Fine/Very Fine.
