Movie Info

Disgraced former police officer David Burke (Ed Begley) is looking for a way to make some quick money. When he decides to rob a bank, he calls on mean ex-con Earl Slater (Robert Ryan) and black entertainer Johnny Ingram (Harry Belafonte) to help him pull off the heist. Johnny is reluctant to agree but is forced to reconsider because of his significant gambling debts, while racist Earl balks because of Johnny's involvement. Ultimately, though, they must work together to get the job done.

Audience Reviews for Odds Against Tomorrow

  • Sep 25, 2010
    Solid crime caper is a little heavy on the symbolism but is well acted and tightly directed with an intriguing and apt music score. Gloria Grahame, who looks pretty rough, is wasted in a small meaningless part.

    Good stuff. It's been quite a few years since the last time I saw a Harry Belafonte film, I had forgotten just what a tremendous actor he really is (was). This is a noir classic that will hold your attention wire to wire. Note: Did the ending remind anyone else of <i>White Heat</i>? ("Top of the world, Ma!")

    One of the last great noir films. Robert Wise's direction is superb as are all the performances. You feel bad for everyone (well, except maybe Robert Ryan) and the climax (As well as most of the movie) is almost heartbreaking even if it's completely expected.
