Frightened City, The (British Thrillers)

Theatrical Release Date:  TBC
Home Ent. Release Date:  10 Feb 2008
Cert:   -


A cool British noir set in 1960s gangland London, The Frightened City follows the story of a low-level criminal (Sean Connery) who gets embroiled in a dangerous racketeering syndicate when he accepts a job from local mobster Harry Foulcher (Alfred Marks). A year before he was thrust into stardom as James Bond, Sean Connery starred in this gripping crime thriller. His spell-binding performance as the brooding, muscular Irish enforcer Paddy Damion has electrifying support from Yvonne Romain as the beautiful gangster’s moll Anya and from Herbert Lom (The Ladykillers) as criminal mastermind Waldo Zhernikov. Shot in moody black and white by Desmond Dickinson and with nods to classic American and Italian crime thrillers, The Frightened City is a tense, stylish gem of 60s British cinema.
