3:20, 7:00 at Film Forum

“Location shooting was unusual then since seemingly every cinematic need could be filled by the vast studio lots and soundstages. [Yet] It is the teeming, unscripted life of the city that gives the movie its sweep and its intrinsic documentary interest. You see kids jumping into the river from the docks and playing games on the walkway of the Williamsburg Bridge, horses pulling milk wagons and peddlers’ carts, El trains rattling overhead in lower Manhattan, pretzel vendors displaying their wares on sticks, laborers going about their trades.”
Luc Sante, Criterion
