Video of the Week: “Finger Man”

Our video this week is a clip from Harold D. Schuster’s Finger Man (1955). Tim is Lou Terpe, the sullen torpedo of bootlegger/white slaver Dutch Becker (Forrest Tucker).


This is the performance that brought Tim to the attention of Stanley Kubrick. The rest, as they say, is history. Enjoy!
