From William Dieterle, the acclaimed director of The Devil and Daniel Webster, I’ll Be Seeing You, Portrait of Jennie and The Accused, comes this electrifying film noir starring screen great William Holden (Stalag 17). When crusading district attorney John Conroy (Edmond O’Brien, The Hitch-Hiker) is tasked to crack down on a powerful crime syndicate, he recruits his no-nonsense newspaperman pal Jerry McKibbon (Holden), his sweetheart Mandy (Alexis Smith, Conflict) and his grizzled detective father (Tom Tully, Ruby Gentry). But unbeknownst to the younger Conroy, the elder Conroy is mixed up in the same racket he’s been appointed to take down. Featuring noir favorites Ed Begley (Boomerang), Ted de Corsia (The Lady from Shanghai) and Neville Brand (D.O.A.) with masterful black-and-white cinematography by Lionel Lindon (Alias Nick Beal), The Turning Point is a thrilling portrait of political corruption that leads to a shocking conclusion.
