Audience Reviews for The Naked Street (The Brass Ring)


Passable noirish crime drama with Graves the crusading reporter and many familiar character actors popping up here and there. Quinn is properly oily but Farley Granger is miscast looking more like he's fresh from prep school than the tenements. Anne Bancroft, during the first uneventful phase of her Hollywoood career, is wasted as Quinn's timourous sister all her fire banked into a nothing part. The script and direction are competent nothing more.
