Street of Shadows (1953) DVD
Cesar Romero gives a memorable performance as a Soho club owner who romances Kay Kendall’s unhappily married society girl in this taut Brit-noir thriller from the early 1950s. With impressive supporting performances from Egypt-born femme fatale Simone Silva and noted British character actor Victor Maddern, Street of Shadows is featured here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its original theatrical aspect ratio.
Luigi, the owner of a Soho pinball club, falls for Barbara, a beautiful socialite whose husband is a compulsive gambler. As their romance blossoms, Luigi finds his former girlfriend murdered with the evidence pointing in Barbara’s direction! Under suspicion and on the run, he must find someone to help him before his luck runs out for good…
