Movie Diary 2/4/2014

Underworld U.S.A. (Samuel Fuller, 1961). Socko yarn that manages to be about both the inner workings of the Mob and a gutter-level story of personal revenge. Cliff Robertson is unusually animated, and Dolores Dorn is excellent. Lots of headlines are visible throughout, but the movie’s also about what the headlines miss.
