Sweet Smell of Success
A powerful New York gossip columnist (Burt Lancaster) and a desperate
press agent (Tony Curtis) tear into the maelstrom of midtown Manhattan's
night creatures in a sinister game that involves money, power and ultimately
survival. Sweet Smell of Success is a great film-noir filled
with classic black and white photography and sharp, cynical dialogue
by Ernest Lehman (North by Northwest) and playwright Clifford Odets.
Also stars Martin Milner, Barbara Nichols, Susan Harrison and Edith
