Based on the play by Michael V. Gazzo, this screen drama focuses on Johnny Pope (Don Murray), a Korean War vet with a severe morphine habit. Though Johnny tries to keep his addiction a secret from his pregnant wife, Celia (Eva Marie Saint), and his brother, Polo (Anthony Franciosa), his deception becomes difficult to maintain, especially in the confines of their small apartment. When Johnny and Polo’s estranged father turns up, the stage is set for plenty of family conflict.

Selected by guest curator Robert Farlice. Robert will host a discussion after each film.
