This month’s classic is the 1953 gangster film ‘The Big Heat’. Directed by Fritz Lang and stars Glen Ford as Dave Bannion in a stellar performance.
Unrelentingly brutal crime drama centers on a street-toughened detective Dave Bannion (Glen Ford) who takes on a politically powerful crime syndicate after his wife is accidentally killed by the gangsters who have been assigned to murder him.
This film has it all, Vice, Dice, and Corruption, a la Hollywood style. Dave Bannion is a good cop in a bad town.
