The Naked City DVD (1948)

A friend of the victim mentions "Mr. Henderson," and the police also find the actions of Frank Niles (Howard Duff) peculiar. As Muldoon and Halloran start to fill in the details of the victim's past, they find that she had a lively social life, filled with many suitors, and the mystery becomes even more complex.
Starring: Barry Fitzgerald, Don Tayler, Howard Duff
Viewer Quote: "This film is in many ways a good example of Film Noir--since it portrays a murder and its investigation, has a classic Noir-style ending and has some very "dark" story elements. Also there are very strong performances, particularly from Barry Fitzgerald. Check out the way he steals every scene he's in. After a half century, Naked City still stands out as one of the best on-location movies filmed in New York City. The black and white cinematography is exquisite. I highly recommend this film, particularly for Film Noir addicts, who will be fascinated to see this turning point in the style."
