Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 07/29/1994
"...Still a riveting depiction of the lower depths, with Frank Sinatra giving a surprisingly sensitive and detailed performance..." -- Rating: A-
New York Times - 10/11/2005
"Preminger defied the contemporary trend toward location shooting by photographing almost all of GOLDEN ARM on a claustrophobic New York street set built on an RKO soundstage, a defiantly expressionistic approach that Preminger would return to and amplify with his brilliant PORGY AND BESS."
Premiere - 11/01/2005
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Its scenes of cold-turkey withdrawal solidified Frank Sinatra's rep as an actor and boosted the career of his raw young costar..."
Entertainment Weekly - 10/28/2005
"[Preminger] makes it work, amping up the claustrophobic tension in beautifully choreographed long takes." -- Grade: B+

Product Description:

This powerful drama, which broached the subject of drug addiction in a stark and realistic manner, may be mild by today's standards, but was a groundbreaking and edgy film in its day. The legendary Frank Sinatra plays addict, Frankie Machine, with Eleanor Parker playing his disabled wife. Based on the novel by Nelson Algren. MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM received three Academy Award Nominations, including Best Actor for Frank Sinatra.

Plot Synopsis:

After six months of drug rehab, Frankie Machine returns to the seedy Chicago joints where he began and succumbs once more to the dark addictions of professional poker, and -- even more dangerously -- heroin.
