The freaking house has flashback!!! Does a good job of creating the trauma of living in an old firetrap of a tenement yard. Wish they'd almost done more with the kid and the psychological affects his home has on him. The movie becomes a completely different beast when those moments was going on. The kid, by the way, was none other then future super-director Sidney Lumet! His only acting gig before getting behind the camera and making those timeless classics. An odd and interesting piece!
