(Nicholas Ray, 1949)
Release date: 22 April 2024
Standard Edition Blu-ray

Humphrey Bogart (The Harder They Fall) and John Derek (The Family Secret) star in Knock on Any Door, a hard-hitting amalgam of film noir, social commentary, and courtroom drama.

Nick Romano (Derek) is a young criminal whose motto is ‘live fast, die young, and leave a good-looking corpse’. But, when Nick faces the death penalty for killing a police officer, hotshot lawyer Andrew Morton (Bogart) defends him, arguing that the killer is merely a product of his environment.

Based on the controversial novel by Willard Motley and directed by the great Nicholas Ray (In a Lonely Place), Knock on Any Door is an often-shocking indictment of the poverty that blights America’s slums.
