    The vicious murder of beautiful blonde Jean Dexter drives the tabloids crazy. Detectives Dan Muldoon and young Jimmy Halloran (Barry Fitzgerald and Don Taylor) go to work with an army of detectives and police forensic professionals to help. They locate Dexter's shifty boyfriend Frank Niles (Howard Duff), who has a bad habit of telling lies. His fiancée Ruth Morrison (Dorothy Hart) doesn't realize that Frank was two-timing her and giving her stolen jewellery. Following the clues of the jewellery, the detectives eventually puts the puzzle together -- but the unlucky family man Halloran encounters the dangerous killer on his own.
    The winner of 2 Academy Awards and directed by master craftsman Jules Dassin, The Naked City was shot entirely on location in New York. A masterpiece of semi-documentary about the city and its people.
