In the swift, cynical "Sweet Smell Of Success", directed by Alexander Mackendrick ("The Ladykillers"), Burt Lancaster ("Brute Force", "The Leopard") stars as barbaric Broadway gossip columnist J. J. Hunsecker, and Tony Curtis (Some Like It Hot, Spartacus) as Sidney Falco, the unprincipled press agent he ropes into smearing the up-and-coming jazz musician romancing his beloved sister. Featuring deliciously unsavory dialogue in an acid, brilliantly structured script by Clifford Odets ("Notorious", "Bigger Than Life") and Ernest Lehman ("North by Northwest", "The Sound of Music") and noirish neon cityscapes from Oscar(R)-winning cinematographer James Wong Howe ("The Thin Man", "Yankee Doodle Dandy"), "Sweet Smell Of Success" is a cracklingly cruel dispatch from the kill-or-be-killed wilds of 1950s Manhattan.
