Victor Mature recites Hamlet’s famous speech

It is not to be missed

Cry of the City
Cry of the City

The Guardian said of Cry of the City (USA),1948, 20th Century Fox), “The German-born Robert Siodmak brings a fascinatingly Italianate, neorealist touch to this hardboiled noir thriller from 1948.” The film has a great lineup of characters: a likeable sociopathic criminal; a sincere detective (played by my dad); a brassy ex-girlfriend; an innocent beauty; an unlicensed immigrant doctor; a conniving shyster; an old-world Italian mother and father; and a zaftig 6’2” masseuse. This is a gritty and straightforward film noir, full of sadness and suspense. Available on YouTube and DVD.

My Darling Clementine (USA, 1946, The Criterion Collection) serves up John Ford, Tombstone, Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, the Clantons, and the O.K. Corral. Small moments take on great importance in this beautifully crafted western shot on location in Monument Valley. My dad, Victor Mature, plays Doc Holliday and his recitation of Hamlet’s famous speech is not to be missed. Available on YouTube and Google Play.

Thanks for the heads-up, Victoria. I have to tell you I grew up on your dad's movies. It was actually my parents picking the channels on our old TV, but they always went to any film that had your dad in it. Whether it was The Robe, or Samson (and Deliah?), or any one of the many he played in. He became one of my favorite actors too. I'll always treasure the memories. Happy to see you on The Reader pages. Hope to hear more from you in the future.
