The Naked City

Filming "The Naked City"
I saw "The Naked City" via Netflix @ home Saturday night. This 1948 movie by directory Jules Dassin is a gem. Jules is famous for directing the sumptuous black and white Rififi

The voice over commentary, shooting on location, and semi-mocumentary style make "The Naked City" a must see. A beautiful model is found drown in her bathtub by her loyal cleaning lady and a murder must be solved. Barry Fitzgerald stills the show as Lt Muldoon. The locations chosen for filming have frozen in time a NewYork filled with busy dinners, quaint horse drawn delivery carts, and really sharp dressed people.

Now you know what movie produced this memorable line:

"There are eight million stories in the naked city. This has been one of them."
