Sweet Smell of Success

Burt Lancaster is J.J. Hunsecker, a world-famed and world-feared newspaper columnist whose ink can make a star or break a politician. Tony Curtis plays frustrated press agent Sidney Falco, tasked with breaking the romance between Hunsecker’s beloved younger sister and an up-and-coming jazz musician. A cynically acidic war of words is waged behind the scenes of New York’s glamorous nightlife, exposing its dark underbelly. Featuring razor-edged dialogue and a pitch-black script by Clifford Odets and Ernest Lehman, plus stunning cinematography by the legendary James Wong Howe, Sweet Smell of Success of Success is absolutely unforgettable.

Ace in the Hole

Rough, tough Chuck Tatum, who battered his way to the top … trampling everything in his path – men, women and morals! Washed up in the big city and now down-and-out in Albuquerque, a ruthlessly ambitious journalist finds the scoop of a lifetime – a man desperately trapped in a cave – and manipulates the rescue and ensuing media sensation for his own gain, only to find it escalating beyond his control. An electrifying Kirk Douglas shines in Billy Wilder’s scathing follow-up to Sunset Boulevard.
