Micro-Review: Edge of the City

“Edge of the City”, 1957, dir. Martin Ritt, starring Sidney Poitier, John Cassavetes, Ruby Dee, Jack Warden.

Rough around the edges, but in a good way. Main flaw is one that to describe would give away too much of the crux, though a secondary flaw is that you see the crux coming.

Poitier and Dee dance together a couple times, and that might be worth the ticket.
