New Rochelle Plays Hollywood: Edge of the City

New Rochelle Plays Hollywood is a new film series presented by the New Rochelle Public Library. Prior to the screening, film aficionado Les Srager will introduce the history of the film and its creative personnel with a discussion period following the screening. The fall series features films of New York.
Edge of the City (1957) Starring Sidney Poitier, John Cassevetes, Jack Warden, and Ruby Dee. Directed by Martin Ritt (85 min.)

Rarely seen, Poitier’s fourth movie and the first to demonstrate the Poitier charm particularly when contrasted with the intensity of Cassevetes. Ground breaking in depicting, without emphasis, a “black-white” friendship. First film directed by the man who went on to direct, for example, “Norma Rae”, “Hud”, and “Hombre”
