Later in the film Edmond O'Brien is on the run through downtown L.A.
and you get a shot of Clifton's then on to the Bradbury Building for the big showdown.



Huh, I missed the shot of Clifton's. Have to go back and rewatch that scene. My daughter and I stopped by the Bradbury Building last Summer. Pretty impressive.

The scene at The Fisherman's is supposedly the first depiction of Beatnik culture in film.

Underworld U.S.A. with Cliff Robertson. It's a 1961 American neo-noir film produced, written and directed by Samuel Fuller. It tells the story of a fourteen-year-old boy who goes to enormous lengths to get revenge against the mobsters who beat his father to death.

Fight in a gangster's apartment that is decorated with modern art and Polynesian and African carvings.


A bunch of gangster's sitting around a coffee table with a carved Tangaroa.

Those figures remind me of some of the carvings at the Mai-Kai. The stances of the figures are also very similar.
