Crime in the Streets

Don Siegel directs a hard boiled tale about juvenile delinquency! Following a rumble between rival NYC gangs, an earnest social worker (The Shawshank Redemption‘s James Whitmore) tries to connect with the kids, while thug leader John Cassavetes plots his violent revenge. Gritty, atmospheric and well-acted, Crime in the Streets features Rebel Without A Cause’s Sal Mineo and future Academy Award nominated director Mark Rydell in excellent supporting roles.

“[Crime in the Streets] is built around long takes of tightly composed performances, culminating in a bravura four-minute shot with entrances and exits brilliantly orchestrated by the commanding presence of Cassavetes.” – Richard Brody, New Yorker

Dino

Sal Mineo explodes like a rocket in the role of his life as Dino, a violent teen cornered like a trapped animal, in this rarely-screened, not-on-dvd juvenile delinquent classic! Following reformatory time for his involvement in a robbery in which a man was killed, Dino is released to a kindly case worker (Brian Keith) who tries to connect with the troubled adolescent. But with tension mounting at home and his old gang hungry for action, will Dino revert to a life of crime or can a new relationship with a pretty girl (Susan Kohner) change the outlook for the young rebel?
