A classic noir thriller, produced and directed by ROBERT WISE (West Side Story), ODDS AGAINST TOMORROW stars HARRY BELAFONTE (Carmen Jones), ED BEGLEY (Sweet Bird of Youth) and ROBERT RYAN (The Dirty Dozen).
Dave Burke (BEGLEY) is an embittered ex – policeman whose career was shattered when he refused to cooperate with the crime commission. Putting the law behind him, he plans a bank heist and recruits the perfect team; Johnny Ingram (BELAFONTE), a black nightclub singer with gambling debts, and Earle Slater (RYAN), a small-minded, racist thief. Both men are reluctant to participate, but personal guilt and financial pressures persuade them to set their doubts aside. The plan falls slowly into place, but Slater’s prejudice’s cause frictions within the group, and tensions mount to an explosive climax as the day of reckoning unfolds.
