Most people with even a passing interest in film have seen Stanley Kubrick's masterpieces—A Clockwork Orange, Dr. Strangelove, etc. But this curiosity, released in 1955, is a chance to see the director's work before his famed iciness took hold. The simple story—fighter meets taxi dancer, taxi dancer's boss ain't happy about it—is an excuse to muck around in the grime of '50s Manhattan. Any movie that climaxes with a surreal fight in a mannequin factory is worthy of attention. (SIFF Cinema, 321 Mercer St, 324-9996. 7:15 and 9 pm, $10.)
