The Big Knife 09/25/17

Arrow Academy

What seemed too raw for 1955 still packs a punch, as Robert Aldrich takes a meat cleaver to the power politics of the old studio system. Monstrous studio head Rod Steiger has just the leverage he needs to blackmail frazzled star Jack Palance into signing the big contract. But will Hollywood corruption destroy them all? The cast list is formidable: Ida Lupino, Wendell Corey, Jean Hagen, Shelley Winters, Everett Sloane, Wesley Addy. On Blu-ray from Arrow Academy.
