(Vincent Sherman, 1957)
Release date: 19 September 2022
Standard Edition Blu-ray

Kerwin Matthews (5 Against the House) and J Lee Cobb (The Family Secret) star in a film noir exposé of murder and corruption in the fashion world.

When a Korean war veteran takes a job at his father’s fashion business, he finds they are paying the mob to shut out the union. When pro-union employees begin getting murdered, he decides to take on the gangsters.

Based on true stories about mob involvement in the garment industry, The Garment Jungle stands as a pro-union response to On the Waterfront, and is no less tough and controversial than that film – original director Robert Aldrich (Kiss Me Deadly) was fired for his refusal to compromise, with Vincent Sherman (Affair in Trinidad) stepping in to complete production.
