About Contract On Cherry Street
Frank Sinatra and Martin Balsam are lieutenants on the vice squad investigating motor vehicle chop shops which lead them to a wider investigation of the mob. After the murder of one of their own, the cops decide to take justice into their own hands, no matter where that dark road takes them. Location filming in New York takes Sinatra into Studio 54 and the backroom of a Jewish deli, which enhances the atmosphere of this procedural/thriller. Great performances from the squad room cops and the mob characters including Jay Black, Verna Bloom, Joe De Santis, Martin Gabel, Harry Guardino, James Luisi, Michael Nouri, Marco St. John, Henry Silva, Richard Ward and Johnny Barnes keep this tale moving at high speed. Written by two-time Academy Award® winner Edward Anhalt (Best Writing, Motion Picture Story, Panic in the Streets, 1950), (Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material from Another Medium, Becket, 1964), from a novel by Philip Rosenberg and directed by William A. Graham. Newly remastered.
