WIN COOL BRITISH 60s NOIR “THE FRIGHTENED CITY” STARRING SEAN CONNERY AND HERBERT LOM FROM VINTAGE CLASSICS ON BLU-RAY

A year before he was thrust into stardom as James Bond, Sean Connery gave a spell-binding performance as the brooding, muscular Irish enforcer Paddy Damion with a streak of rakish charm, with electrifying support from Yvonne Romain as the beautiful gangster’s moll Anya and from Herbert Lom as criminal mastermind Waldo Zhernikov. 

THE FRIGHTENED CITY, with its gritty depiction of the criminal underworld was shot in moody black and white by Desmond Dickinson and directed by John Lemont (The Shakedown). With nods to classic American and Italian crime thrillers, THE FRIGHTENED CITY is a tense, stylish gem of 60s British cinema.
