I have never heard of this movie until now (shame on me, I'm sure) but damn if that isn't one hell of a shot. Have to look this one up now.

There are some great on-location shots of NYC. One sequence has some awesome shots of the old Third Avenue Elevated (better than those in The Lost Weekend, in my opinion).
At one point, Douglas is walking through Harlem and bumping into people (his character is heavy into booze) who, I'm convinced, didn't know they were in a movie (it appears he was filmed from a moving vehicle). Damn, Gotham looked good.

Beautiful film, for sure. Caught it on CBC late night when I was a teen, and eventually picked it up on laserdisc. It figures prominently in the "New York" section of the cinematographers' documentary Visions of Light.
