USA 1957
Dir Alexander Mackendrick
With Burt Lancaster, Tony Curtis, Susan Harrison
Certificate PG

A journalist in New York, determined to split his sister up from her jazz-musician boyfriend, bribes a hack to do his dirty work in return for professional favours. Breaking Bad’s Vince Gilligan cites this as being his favourite film, but sadly it didn’t garner much in the way of awards recognition.
