Odds Against Tomorrow
A heist movie with a twist, starring Robert Ryan and Harry Belafonte as reluctant partners in crime.
Dir Robert Wise
With Gloria Grahame, Robert Ryan, Harry Belafonte, Shelley Winters
Director Robert Wise offers a heist movie with a twist, as Robert Ryan’s troubled WWII veteran confronts his prejudices when he embarks on a bank job with a black jazz performer (Belafonte). A very personal project for Belafonte, the film is one of the last Hollywood noirs ever produced. Grahame makes an impression in the small role of Ryan’s sexually frustrated neighbour, in her swansong as a screen siren.
