  • "Jean Dexter is an attractive blonde model who is murdered in her New York City apartment. Homicide detectives Dan Muldoon and Jimmy Halloran investigate. Suspicion falls on various shifty people who all prove to have some connection with a string of apartment burglaries. Then a burglar is found dead who once had an elusive partner named Willie."
  • ""'There are eight million stories in the Naked City, and this has been just one of them' says the narrator at the close of this breathtakingly vivid film in which, one sweltering New York night, two men subdue and murder an ex-model. When one of the murderers, conscience-stricken, gets drunk, the other kills him and hoists his body into the East River. Assigned to the case are Barry Fitzgerald's veteran Homicide Detective Lt. Dan Muldoon and his rookie associate, Jimmy Halloran. This dazzling police procedural from Dassin and newspaperman-cum-producer Mark Hellinger was shot entirely on location in New York. As influenced by Italian neorealism as American crime fiction, this double Oscar-winner (for cinematography and editing) remains a benchmark for naturalism in film noir."@en

  • ""In the late hours of a hot New York summer night, jewel thieves Willie Garzah and Peter Backalis kill Jean Dexter, an ex-model, then place her body in her bathtub. When Backalis gets drunk after the murder, Garzah kills him, then dumps his body in the East River. Later, Homicide detective Dan Muldoon and his young associate, Jimmy Halloran, are assigned to Jean's case, which the medical examination has determined was murder, not an accident. While Dan interrogates Martha Swenson, Jean's housekeeper, about Jean's boyfriends, Jimmy questions Dr. Lawrence Stoneman, Jean's physician, and Ruth Morrison, another model. Back at the police station, Dan questions Frank Niles, Jean's ex-boyfriend, who lies about everything, including his current engagement to Ruth. Later, Dan determines from the bruises on Jean's neck that she was killed by two men. That evening, Mr. and Mrs. Batory, Jean's estranged parents, arrive in New York to formally identify the body, and tell the detectives that they have no knowledge of Jean's acquaintances. The next morning, the detectives learn that Frank sold a gold cigarette case stolen from Stoneman, then purchased a one-way airline ticket to Mexico. They also discover that Jean's ring was stolen from the wealthy Mrs. Hylton, Ruth's mother. Learning that Ruth's engagement ring is also stolen property, Dan and Jimmy rush to Frank's apartment, where they save him from being murdered by Garzah. The."@en
  • ""A thriller about the New York City Police Department's painstaking investigation of the bathtub murder of a blonde tramp. Shot on location in Manhattan's labyrinthine streets, the film claimed to offer a documentary-like impression of city life (inspired by the sensational photography of Arthur "Weegee" Fellig, who was hired as a consultant), but the filmmaker's real mission was to tell an ordinary murder tale with an original accumulation of detail and humor." -- Container."
