MONKEY ON MY BACK
1957, Park Circus/UA, 93 min, USA, Dir: Andre de Toth

Cameron Mitchell stars in the real-life story of Barney Ross, a former champ addicted to both gambling and morphine. Released at the same time as the similar-themed THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM, this is a much darker piece of filmmaking – a creepy and unnerving tale in which Mitchell's drug forays are straight out of THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI.
