About Film: Kennington Noir presents The Big Combo (1955)

The Big Combo (1955), directed by Joseph H Lewis, with Cornel Wilde, Richard Conte and Jean Wallace.

Cornel Wilde plays an obsessed cop out to get crime boss Richard Conte in an outstanding gangster film that created quite a stir when it was first released due to its (for the time) sadistic violence and exploration of twisted sexuality. Joseph H. Lewis’s stylish direction, Philip Yordan’s hard-boiled script, John Alton’s superb low-key cinematography, and David Raksin’s jazzy score all combine to create a classic film noir. A lit cigarette is the only illumination in a pitch-black alley. Every passageway is shrouded in a layer of mist. Each head is covered in a fedora hat tilted just so that the top slides into all its surrounding sharp edges. This is the look of The Big Combo.

Doors open at 18.30, for a 19.30 start.

Refreshments will be available in our licensed cafe/bar.
