“Odd Man Out” will be the next film screened in the British Film Festival, at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 20, in Plaster Hall’s Cornell Auditorium.
James Mason stars as a revolutionary ex-convict in Belfast who attempts a robbery that goes wrong. Injured and hunted by the police, he desperately seeks refuge in the city, as the woman he loves searches for him. Carol Reed (who would go on to direct “The Third Man”) directed this noir thriller, according to Criterion, a “fierce, spiritual depiction of a man’s ultimate confrontation with himself.”
The screening is free and open to the public.
