Don't Bother to Knock (1952)
Video added on 30th November in Film

The Screen at Contemporary welcomes you to check in to our new season of classic films set in hotels and motels. Hotels have long been the scene for mischief, excess and transience. We go to be alone, to be seen, or to be someone else.

Set over one night at the McKinley Hotel in New York, a guest, babysitter, bar singer, hotel detective and bellhop get tangled in this noiresque thriller. Marylin Monroe gives a serious and thoughtful performance as a young woman suffering from mental health problems.

Directed by Roy Ward Baker
