Oscar®-winning Best Actor Ray Milland, stars in The Big Clock, a smart and stylish film noir thriller about an innocent man wrongfully accused of murder. A hotshot crime magazine editor George Stroud (Milland), inadvertently becomes the subject of a murder investigation after spending an evening with his boss' (Charles Laughton) mistress. She ends up dead and he is being framed by the actual killer. Meanwhile, at the publishing office, Stroud's competent staff scurries for clues while he finds himself in a race against the clock to prove his innocence. It seems the prime suspect they are seeking matches an all-too-familiar description…his own! Known for its intriguing film noir cinematography and featuring beautiful costumes by Edith Head, this is one suspense classic you won't want to miss.
