Legendary actor Rod Steiger joins us for an afternoon for a tribute to his career with this highlighted screening of the classic comedy, No Way to Treat a Lady; one of the films Mr. Steiger wanted to share at this year's Cinequest.
Based on the novel by William Goldman, director Jack Smight's black comedy is a delightful blend of romantic comedy and murder. The world's wackiest killer and master of disguise (Steiger) stalks the streets of New York, all the while phoning clues to the detective on the case to keep the chase interesting. Now he wants to "up the ante" once more - his next target is the detective's girlfriend! Oh, and did we mention the dwarf? Suspenseful, offbeat and often hilarious, No Way to Treat a Lady shows Rod Steiger as you probably have never seen him before and reveals the remarkable versatility of this renowned maverick actor. - Mike Rabehl
