3 things about Henry Hathaway’s CALL NORTHSIDE 777

Call Northside 777 [1948]

1. Opening narration: “In 1932 there were 365 murders in Chicago, one for each day of the year. Eight policemen were shot down in the line of duty.” In 2015, there were 488 homicides in Chicago.
2. She works as a scrubwoman in the Wrigley Building. An echoey conversation at the top of a marble stairway.
3. Working on a 500-piece puzzle. Elegant metaphor.
