The production dates from 1960; it is one of Sidney Lumet's early directorial efforts. The story can be monotonous, after all these are alcoholics and prostitutes who shout and blubber a lot, whose clothes are not exactly clean and in good repair (you can practically smell Larry's stained shirt), but the drama does come through the grit. Jason Robards as Hickey, Michael MCormick as Larry and Tom Pedi as Rocky the barkeep are very good in a strong cast.

Very powerful and moving film. Still relevant to our own times. The dreams, hopes and failures of the individuals portrayed in this drama are universal.
