“Sweet Smell of Success,” Film Screening 

When: Wed., Feb. 15, 7:30 p.m. 2012
Phone: 404.727-6761
Price: free
White Hall Room 205. Written by Clifford Odets and Ernest Lehman; music by Elmer Bernstein and the Chico Hamilton Quartet; starring Burt Lancaster and Tony Curtis. Cinematography by James Wong Howe. "Sweet Smell of Success" was dubbed by one period reviewer “one of the most cynical movies ever made.” The steely stillness of Burt Lancaster’s performance as the Walter Winchell-based columnist J.J. Hunsecker may have justly earned him a place in AFI’s top 50 movie villains but Tony Curtis’ endlessly ingratiating and deliciously craven press agent Sidney Falco is the heart of this black-hearted movie.
