While the City Sleeps 1956 ★★★★

Fritz Lang's newspaper noir follows the competition between the heads of three news departments as they try to crack the case of The Lipstick Killer, and thereby win a new executive position. A nicely soap-opera-ish tale of investigation - it's easy to see the seeds of the CSI-style TV shows here. The amazing cast includes Dana Andrews, George Sanders, Ida Lupino, Howard Duff and Vincent Price, all doing the things they do so well.
