(Advance Production Feature)

Belafonte, Ryan, Winters In “Odds Against Tomorrow”

An explosive drama of hate, fear and the ironies of fate is the tale told in the new film, “Odds Against Tomorrow,” a United Artists re- lease, which will open. .................... beth eeaere wae .ce oe Theatre. The pic- ture, produced and directed by Academy Award nominee (“I Want To Live”) Robert Wise, stars Harry Belafonte, Robert Ryan, Shelley Winters and co-stars Ed Begley and Gloria Grahame. The screenplay was written by John O. Killens and Nelson Gidding who based their script on the novel by William McGivern.

With the exception of one important sequence which was filmed in upstate New York, the entire picture was photographed in the big Metropolis itself, taking in some of the famous and many of the less famous sites of the great city.

“Odds Against Tomorrow” is the story of three desperate men, none professional criminals, who conceive and execute a daring bank rob- bery with the utmost care for detail. Their personal emotions, however, interfere with their careful plan for the crime. One is a bitter, hating Southerner (Robert Ryan), one is a nightclub entertainer in desperate need of money (Harry Belafonte), and the third, a vengeful ex-cop who plans the “once-in-a-lifetime” robbery (Ed Begley).

Shelley Winters as Ryan’s girl friend, has a wonderful opportunity once again to demonstrate her fine talent in the moving and _ pivotal role of the one important person in Ryan’s life. Gloria Grahame emerges from a voluntary two year retirement to accept the role of the “other woman.” Gloria, who won an Academy Award for “The Bad and the Beautiful,” teams up with Robert Ryan for the first time in eight years, when they both starred in “Crossfire.”

A noted young ballerina, Carmen de Lavallade makes her straight acting debut in the film, appearing as Harry Belafonte’s girl friend.

The score for “Odds Against Tomorrow,” composed in the modern jazz idiom (as was the score for “I Want To Live”) was written by the noted pianist and leader of the Modern Jazz Quartet, John Lewis.

Story

(Not for Publication)

Dave Burke (Ed Begley) an ex- police officer who refused to answer some embarrassing questions put by a crime commission, becomes an em- bittered man and plans to rob a sma’! bank about 100 miles from New York City. He contacts Jchnny Ing- ram (Harry Belafonte) a performer in a local gin mill. Ingram at first refuses to participate. But after Burke puts the pressure on a gambler to whom Johnny is heavily in debt to collect, Johnny agrees to go through with the deal.

Burke’s second choice is Ed Slater (Robert Ryan) a morose Southerner, who is living with his understanding girlfriend Lorry (Shell!ey Winters). Although hating to be in on the same job with a Negro, Slater too, accedes to Burke. Slater is fraught with guilt feelings for having allowed himself to be seduced by a neighbor (Gloria Grahame).

The robbery is carefully planned and is essentially based on the fact that a Negro counter man delivers coffee to the bank at a certain hour. Ingram, then, is the key man in this caper. Everything goes off smoothly until the moment when Slater has to cooperate with Ingram. His deep anti-Negro feeling prevents this and disaster results. Burke is shot fleeing the bank, and Slater and Ingram are blown to bits as a chemical vat, be- hind which they are hiding, explodes from gunfire.

(Prepared Review)

“Odds Against Tomorrow’ Drama of Desperate Men

“Odds Against Tomorrow,” the United Artists release which opened yestenday, abethews.. ee Theatre, is a taut suspense drama woven around three exciting personalities, who because of their difficulties, decide to stage a bank robbery. Starred in this tight, superbly-directed film are Harry Belafonte, Robert Ryan, Shelley Winters, Ed Begley and Gloria Grahame.

Begley plays a shrewd, revengeful ex-police officer whose idea it is to rob a small bank about 100 miles from New York City. In the po- sition of mastermind, he contacts Harry Belafonte, a performer who sings in a local ginmill. Belafonte, at first wants no part of it, but is so heavily involved in gambling debts that he is forced to accept the deal. Begley’s second choice is Robert Ryan, a powerful morose South- erner, for whom life is a dark and bitter struggle. He lives with his girlfriend, played by Shelley Winter, a warm, adult and understanding woman. Unable to come up with a good business deal, he is concerned with the fact that he is supported by his girlfriend. This makes him a ripe candidate for Begley’s plan.

Robert Wise, who won an Academy Award nomination for his splendid handling of “I Want To Live,” enhances his reputation with his taut, crisp direction of “Odds Against Tomorrow.”

The score for the film, done in a haunting, cool melodic structure, was composed by John Lewis, director of the famous combo, The Modern Jazz Quartet, whose latest work surpasses even that now classic score for “No Sun In Venice.”

This reviewer cannot praise too highly the effective, stark and dra- matically beautiful photography of cameraman Joseph Brun.

‘No Made-to-Order Stories For Negroes’ Belafonte

“Negro talent,” Harry Belafonte declared, “can and should be able to hold its own in any kind of motion picture story and not just in the ‘made-to-order’ role where the message is on interracial amity. This is an excellent objective in itself, but personally I prefer to see Negroes in films and on the stage as they are, as human beings, with all the fundamental drives, ambitions, frustrations and _
