The Defiant Ones
Sunday, April 10, 2016, 4:00 p.m.
Dir. Stanley Kramer. 1958, 97 mins. 35mm. With Sidney Poitier, Tony Curtis. Poitier and Tony Curtis are a pair of escaped convicts—shackled together and none too happy about it—who must work together to survive as they flee across hostile Southern terrain. Distinguished by tour-de-force performances from the two leads and moody, Oscar-winning black-and-white cinematography, Stanley Kramer’s groundbreaking microcosm of America’s racial strugglepacks both genuine suspense and a pointed social commentary.
