Hers: Kami's Take
Street of Shadows (1953) is part of the February 2019 lineup on The Film Detective. For us, it’s a new classic movie discovery and one we wanted to collaborate on writing about as the Classic Couple
Street of Shadows is the original name of a British film noir set in the streets of Soho in London. It centers around two men—Luigi, played by Cesar Romero, the proprietor of a pin-table saloon bearing his name, Luigi’s, and Limpy, his right-hand man so named for the club foot giving him a pronounced limp. Limpy, played by Victor Maddern, idolizes Luigi as his boss and protector.
