THE SET-UP

Thursday, March 8

A Trylon Roadshow at the Heights Theater

(1949, 35mm, 73m) dir Robert Wise w/ Robert Ryan & Audrey Totter. A hard-boiled Robert Ryan is never better in Robert Wise’s boxing noir The Set-Up. Washed up boxer Bill “Stoker” Thompson (Ryan) is hoping to win a last fight against the up-and-coming Tiger Nelson, so the aged pugilist can start a new life with the $500 purse. But the world seems dead-set against him: from a wife who begs him to quit, to a mob boss who’s fixed the match, to a promoter who’s convinced that Stoker’s so unlikely to win there’s no use even telling him about the set-up. A beautiful, brutal noir that captures perfectly the doomed romance of the boxing ring, and the desperate people who ply their trade in its smoky light. $10
