Sweet Smell of Success
Cert: PG Year: 1957 Length: 95 mins
MacKendrick is better known as the director of The Ladykillers, Whisky Galore and other Ealing comedies. This film basically finished his career: a disaster on its release, it has become recognised as a true classic. A brilliant depiction of the lure of fame, and the depths to which some sink in its pursuit. Quite stunning.
The film is a masterpiece, intelligent Hollywood cinema at its best.
