"The Motion Picture That Will Never Be Forgiven"

Here's the trailer from Alexander Mackendrick's 1957 film, The Sweet Smell of Success.

Mackendrick, a screenwriter, storyboard editor, and director is also the author of On Film-making: An Introduction to the Craft of the Director. It's a terrific book for the aspiring filmmaker drawing on examples from such classic films as North by Northwest, Citizen Kane, and Touch of Evil.

The film is available from Criterion.   Delightfully sleazy.
