Comic Strip Review: Where the Sidewalk Ends
By Hannah Berry
Blackmail, murder, brutality, manipulation: Otto Preminger’s noir world view is at its darkest and most compelling in Where the Sidewalk Ends (1950) and Whirlpool (1949).
Film Noir Classics brings together four classic titles from two masters of the genre: Fallen Angels (Otto Preminger, 1945); Whirlpool (Otto Preminger, 1949); Night and the City (Jules Dassin, 1950) and Where the Sidewalk Ends (Otto Preminger, 1950). It is available now on DVD in the UK from the BFI. Hannah Berry is the author of noir graphic novel Britten and Brulightly.
