Synopsis

This dazzling film noir actually starts with the death of the "hero" (superbly played by Burt Lancaster) - which removes any doubt of the outcome, but doesn't kill the suspense, as the emphasis is not on how or when he dies, but why. And, for that matter, why does he accept his death so calmly, with the words "There's nothin' I can do about it"? The film is divided into flashbacks, each providing a piece of the puzzle - a daring device that keeps you gripped till the very end.

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
