Studs Lonigan ★★ 1960
Drifting, too artsy rendering a James T. Farrell's trilogy about an Irish drifter growing up in Chicago in the '20s. Good period detail, but oddly off-kilter and implausible as history. 96m/B VHS, DVD . Christopher Knight, Frank Gorshin, Jack Nicholson, Jay C. Flippen, Katherine Squire, Dick Foran, Carolyn Craig; D: Irving Lerner; W: Philip Yordan; C: Haskell Wexler; M: Jerry Goldsmith.
