City That Never Sleeps ★★½ 1953

A Chicago cop must decide whether or not to run off with an entertainer, or continue his life with his family. Decisions, decisions. Moody but dated melodrama that's finely acted and indecisively directed, with good use of dim city lights. Nothing new here. 90m/B VHS . Gig Young, Mala Powers, Edward Arnold, Paula Raymond, Chill Wills, Marie Windsor; D: John H. Auer.
