11 editions published between 1948 and 2012 in English and Italian and held by 338 libraries worldwide
A lawyer for a gambling syndicate is jolted into recognising the self-image of his own corruption by the murder of his brother, a small time numbers operator. The script, with dialogue and narration often written in street-wise blank verse, equates racketeering with a form of capitalism. Edward Hopper's urban landscapes provided a conscious model for the images. Director Polonsky was later blacklisted for the film's political implications

Street scene by King Vidor( visu )
4 editions published between 1931 and 2000 in English and held by 70 libraries worldwide
This film centres on a young man's struggle to escape from the New York tenements where he has been brought up. It is his love for the girl next door that is most likely to hold him back from bettering himself by going to college. Street Scene also attempts quite consciously to be a slice-of-life drama filmed on a large single set. Vidor was apparently hamstrung by Goldwyn's excessive respect for the original stage play
