Odds against tomorrow = Le coup de l'escalier

dir. by Robert Wise

« Embittered ex-cop Dave Burke (Ed Begley) enlists ruthless killer Earle Slater (Robert Ryan, The Dirty Dozen) and gambling musician Johnny Ingram (Harry Belafonte) to rob an upstate New York bank. Trouble unfolds however when, fuelled by racist hatred, Earle clashes with Johnny and the planned heist spirals into chaos, leading to a violent climactic confrontation.With its exceptional jazz score, acerbic social commentary and atmospheric visual style, Odds Against Tomorrow is a high point in the Film Noir canon, and one of the most important films of its era to address racism. »
