The film also stars Kim Novak (Vertigo) and Eleanor Parker (The Sound of Music).
The Man With the Golden Arm is directed by Otto Preminger (Anatomy Of A Murder, Laura) with a jazz score by the legendary Elmer Bernstein (Cape Fear, My Left Foot). The new release features a stunning new transfer, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
