Sweet Smell of Success (PG) – 1957, USA, 99 mins
Directore: Alexander Mackendrick
New York City newspaper writer J.J. Hunsecker holds considerable sway over public opinion with his Broadway column, but one thing that he can’t control is his younger sister, Susan, who is in a relationship with aspiring jazz guitarist Steve Dallas. Hunsecker strongly disproves of the romance and recruits publicist Sidney Falco to find a way to split the couple, no matter how ruthless the method.
Mackendrick – the Scottish director of Ealing comedy, The Ladykillers – skewers the twisted relationship between celebrity and the media.
Sunday Live Jazz Brew from 11:00am. Film at 3:00pm.
