Description

If you refuse to cooperate you'll be as guilty as the traitors who gave Stalin the A-bomb.'' ''Are you waving the flag at ME?!'' Samuel Fuller's sensational film noir casts a steely eye at America in the dawn of the Cold War, and brings 1950s New York City alive on the screen in a manner rarely equalled in the annals of film. In one of his greatest roles, Richard Widmark plays Skip McCoy, a seasoned pickpocket who unknowingly filches some radioactive loot: microfilm of top-secret government documents. Soon after, Skip finds himself mixed up with federal agents, Commie agents, and a professional stoolpigeon by the name of Moe (played by Thelma Ritter in her finest role this side of Rear Window). With its complex ideology, outrageous dialogue, and electric action sequences, Pickup on South Street crackles in a way that only a Sam Fuller movie can, and is widely considered one of the director's finest achievements. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Pickup on South Street on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK, in a Dual Format special edition. SPECIAL DUAL FORMAT (BLU-RAY + DVD) EDITION featuring: New 1080p transfer of the film on Blu-ray from Fox's stunning 4K restoration, with a progressive encode on the DVD Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing New video interview with critic, filmmaker, and programmer Kent Jones Video interview with critic Franá§ois Guárif French television excerpt with Samuel Fuller Original theatrical trailer 28-PAGE BOOKLET featuring a new essay on the film by critic Murielle Joudet; remarks by Fuller; and rare imagery Review ''Noir Classic'' --Roger Ebert''superb thriller'' --Time Out''Sam Fuller's 1953 noir masterpiece'' --Daily Telegraph
