Reviewed by Dennis Littrell 7/10

This is a remake of Night and the City (1950) directed by Jules Dissan,who was blacklisted by Hollywood because of actions by the HouseUn-American Activities Committee, and for that reason is dedicated toDissan who had to continue his career in Europe. The original filmstarred Richard Widmark, Gene Tierney, Francis L. Sullivan and HerbertLom. I haven&#x27;t seen that film, but I understand that it is very good.<br><br>This film from 1992 is not bad; however for some reason its reputationisn&#x27;t much. The voters at IMDb give it a rather tepid 5.7 stars out of10 while giving the original 8 out of 10. I&#x27;m not sure why, but I thinkit has to do with: (1) Robert De Niro playing a non-heroic character.It certainly doesn&#x27;t have anything to do with his acting. He isoutstanding as Harry Fabian, flimflam low life lawyer and cheap BSartist who tries desperately to make a big splash as a fight promoter.I think most De Niro fans would prefer to see him in a more two-fistedrole. At any rate, those who didn&#x27;t like the movie almost certainlydidn&#x27;t care for De Niro&#x27;s performance since his character dominates theaction.<br><br>(2) The ending, which some might see as unfinished and others asdisagreeable since, regardless of what transpires, Fabian is still aloser, perhaps bigger than ever.<br><br>(3) Some rather cheesy plot play. Near the end Fabian and Helen(Jessica Lange looking as fetching as ever) hide in a dead end alleyamong dumpsters and trash cans. Well, they should have continuedrunning since the guys after them were only walking. Also when Fabianand Helen run out the side door of the restaurant they go the wrong wayso that the heavies can see them running across the street. Had theyturned left instead of right (as anybody in their situation would havedone) they would not even have been seen. Furthermore, Fabian in aflamboyant gesture throws $12,000 into the air that flutters to theground in the dead end alley. Nobody bothers to pick it up. That couldhappen.<br><br>What cannot be faulted is the authentic New York atmosphere created bydirector Irvin Winkler, who is better know as a producer, most notablyof the Sylvester Stallone &#x22;Rocky&#x22; films, and the fine work by the restof the cast, especially Alan King (Ira &#x22;Boom Boom&#x22; Grossman), EliWallach (Peck), Cliff Gorman (Phil Nasseros), and Jack Warden (AlGrossman). The story itself, from a novel by Gerald Kersh (script byRichard Price), is a variation on the &#x22;lovable, colorful loser makesgood&#x22; theme, only in this case, like an inept noir anti-hero, he fallson his face--more than once, by the way.<br><br>No real De Niro fan should miss this. Personally I thought it was oneof his best performances. The rapid fire dialogue, the fawning,pathetic, yet somehow uplifting personality were not something mostactors could pull off, at least not nearly as well. De Niro became thecharacter he portrayed.<br><br>Bottom line: definitely worth seeing. You will not be bored.<br><br>(Note: Over 500 of my movie reviews are now available in my book &#x22;Cutto the Chaise Lounge or I Can&#x27;t Believe I Swallowed the Remote!&#x22; Get itat Amazon!)

NIGHT AND THE CITY (1992) *** Robert De Niro, Jessica Lange, Alan King,Cliff Gorman, Jack Warden, Barry Primus. Slice-of-low-life portrait remakeof 1940 Richard Widmark flick casts De Niro as ambulance chasing attorneyHarry Fabian trying to score big-time as a boxing promoter with the help ofhis lady love (Lange in an uncharacteristically unglamourous role) and theex-fighter brother (Warden) of his chief nemesis (King in a humdinger ofchilly malevolence as the corrupt boxing mogul). Feisty and surprisinglyfunny script courtesy of Richard Price (in a bit role as a doctor) has itsmoments of ugliness and sudden downshift into tragedy. De Niro, at timesover-the-top, is the life-force to this otherwise entertainingmelodrama.<br><br>

In his career Robert DeNiro has done four remakes of classic films ofwhich Night And The City is one of them. The other three are We&#x27;re NoAngels, Cape Fear, and Frankenstein. In redoing parts made immortal byHumphrey Bogart, Robert Mitchum, Boris Karloff, and in this caseRichard Widmark, DeNiro has wisely chosen not to imitate any of thesepeople, instead whatever you think of the final product, he&#x27;s certainlyput out his own interpretation on these roles.<br><br>From the shadow world of the London underworld scene where Americanexpatriate Richard Widmark operated to the streets of New York in theNineties, the plot of Night And The City has essentially remained thesame except, and this is critical for the ending. DeNiro must haveloved the fact that his Tribeca Productions got to film in and aroundNew York, especially in Tribeca. <br><br>Widmark is a small time hood, DeNiro is a cheap shyster lawyer, thekind that lawyer jokes are made about. He hears them and he&#x27;s obliviousto them. What he&#x27;s not oblivious to is the success he sees around him.It&#x27;s personified by Cliff Gorman who runs a successful bar where DeNirotells his war stories. It&#x27;s also even more personified by Alan King whois a boxing promoter with some underworld connections. He&#x27;s risen tothe top in a very tough racket.<br><br>DeNiro tries to enter King&#x27;s world and buys King&#x27;s reluctant acceptancewith using King&#x27;s older brother Jack Warden who is a retired fighterliving in an old age home. If you remember what happens in the originalNight And The City, you pretty much know what is going to happen hereand for the most part it does.<br><br>The legal profession doesn&#x27;t necessarily attract guys like DeNiro, he&#x27;sno Louis Brandeis, he&#x27;s not about to publish articles in Harvard LawReview. But with him lying and conning is second nature, he does itlike he breathes. Even Jessica Lange who is Gorman&#x27;s wife and whoDeNiro is carrying on with, he lies to her and worse because he needsmoney. He&#x27;d do all this if he wasn&#x27;t a lawyer.<br><br>The cast is an incredibly select and good one of New Yorkers themselveswho can play these parts like second nature. Even Jessica Lange who isa native of Minnesota is New York enough for her part. One role I haveto call attention to is that of Margo Winkler. She has one scene as ajudge with lawyer DeNiro whom obviously she&#x27;s dealt with before. Shethrows him and his put up accident case out of court in a reallyterrific way.<br><br>The film would rate a lot higher with me had the original ending fromJules Dassin&#x27;s classic version been kept. It wasn&#x27;t and it reallycheapens the impact of the film. Other than that this version of NightAnd The City is a good film with a great cast of players to perform it.
