Just for fun, a clip from GIVE US THIS DAY, a 1949 noirish film based on CHRIST IN CONCRETE. As you can see, many aspects of the novel–especially its “translated” aspect–don’t pass through Hollywood’s filtration system. But interesting to think that the novel would have made a film at all. Would be an interesting research project: I believe that the filmmaker was blacklisted in the McCarthy era and that the film thus wasn’t distributed in the US.
