Directed by Fritz Lang, The Big Heat stars Gloria Grahame as a gangster’s girl who puts herself at risk of falling foul of her old flame Vince Stone (Lee Marvin). Police Sergeant Dave Bannion (Glenn Ford) is investigating the apparent suicide of a corrupt cop, but is suddenly ordered to stop the investigation. Driven to unravel the mystery, Bannion continues probing until an explosion meant for him kills his wife. He resigns from the force and soon learns that behind it all is a powerful underworld organisation.

Fritz Lang's 1953 thriller retains its shocking power.
