RIP Kirk Douglas -- Don't watch the trailer...

... Unless you've seen the movie.

I was going to post just the trailer, but I checked it out and it was absolutely terrible, a complete misrepresentation of the film.

Of course, this was a picture that needed considerable misrepresentation in 1951. Even by 2020 standards, it's a stunningly hard-edged, cynical, mean piece of work. You can imagine the horror the PR department must have felt when they first saw what they were supposed to promote.
