The Sleeping City

Universal City, CA: Universal Pictures, 1950. Post-production Continuity and Dialogue script for the 1950 film noir.

A hospital orderly is murdered, leading New York police to send in an undercover detective to hunt down the culprit. Unlike many of its contemporaries, shot entirely on location, in documentary style, although objections from then-mayor of New York William O'Dwyer obligated director Richard Conte to add a prologue assuring the viewer that the film was fictive.

Set and shot on location at Bellevue Hospital in New York.
