DLCL Film Series: The Man with the Golden Arm

Join us for the first screening of the DLCL Film Series: The Man With the Golden Arm (1955, 119').

Two years after his censorship battle over The Moon is Blue (1953), Otto Preminger again provoked the censors with his 1955 film The Man with the Golden Arm. A significant film from Preminger’s middle-career, The Man with the Golden Arm is at once emotionally and visually compelling, and efficient and contained; the work of a controlled and assertive director. It features a remarkably assured performance from Frank Sinatra as the central protagonist Frankie Machine, a recently reformed heroin addict who struggles to keep clean after returning from rehab to his home in a grimy Chicago slum.
