: The Saturday Thriller: Cry of the City

Feature films with suspense, danger, excitement

Tonight: "Cry of the City"
starring Victor Mature, Richard Conte
with Fred Clark, Shelley Winter

An escaped gangster in New York makes a last attempt to beat the law in a relentless game of cat-and-mouse with one particularly tenacious detective.
Director Robert Siodmak brings a laconic sense of humour to this exciting on-the-spot drama of police action in New York, and ably exploits Victor Mature's capacity for self-parody in his performance as a first-generation Italian immigrant cop. Mature is best known for his beefy roles in such films as Samson and Delilah and The Robe; he has, however, played detective roles in several other films, notably "Hot Spot" seen earlier in The Saturday Thriller series. Richard Conte, who plays the tough young murderer Martin Rome, is himself of Italian extraction and brings great conviction to the role, again revealing himself as one of the screen's most sensitive actors. Viewers may remember him in "Thieves' Highway," recently screened by BBC-tv.


Screenplay: Richard Murphy
From a novel by: Henry Edward Helseth
Producer: Sol C. Siegel
Director: Robert Siodmak
Lt. Candella: Victor Mature
Martin Rome: Richard Conte
Lt. Collins: Fred Clark
Brenda: Shelley Winters
Nurse Pruett: Betty Garde
Niles: Berry Kroeger

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
