The Midnight Story 1957 Tony Curtis Crime Drama
Stars: Tony Curtis, Marisa Pavan, Gilbert Roland
The Midnight Story has Tony Curtis starring as a young motorcycle cop who was raised in an orphanage. The priest who ran the orphanage is knifed to death at the midnight hour. As this priest was the single most important figure in his life, Curtis wants to get reassigned to homicide to help catch the killer. But the PD won’t reassign him, so Curtis quits the San Francisco PD and goes to work on his own. Someone in the Fisherman’s Wharf community did the deed and he’ll find out who it is. His suspicions fall on Gilbert Roland playing his usual happy go lucky self as one of the fisherman, but Roland is a man who is hiding obviously something.
Curtis turns in a fine job as the troubled and conflicted cop who wants more than anything to believe Roland is not capable of killing a priest. The real star of the film though is Roland. This part is one of the best he ever did on film. Some other outstanding performances are Argentina Brunetti as Roland’s sister, Ted DeCorsia and Jay C. Flippen as Curtis’s police superiors.
