While the City Sleeps – 1956 Lang

George Sanders, Dana Andrews, Thomas Mitchell, Vincent Price and Ida Lupino are all perfectly cast and do a great job here I really don’t care for Lang’s use of fast forward here on some chase and action sequences- it’s a flaw You can clearly see the cost cutting on the exposition shots- which is, in itself, a little sad when you consider some of the create set design work Lang did in the 1920s mostly- but even still to a lesser extend in the 30’s and 40’s with some Hollywood noir Certainly comparisons can be made here with the narrative
