Pic of the Day: “East of Eden” (1955) revisited

Today our pic takes another look at Joe the bouncer from Elia Kazan‘s East of Eden (1955). In marked contrast to his rumpled just-woke-up look from earlier in the film, Joe is now freshly groomed, snappily dressed and raring to begin another night of tossing drunks out on their ears.
