A Real Look at ‘The Naked City’
“The Naked City,” Universal film opening Thursday at the Capitol, stars Barry Fitzgerald as a New York police detective trying to solve the murder of a young woman. .. Much of The Naked City was shot on the lower East Side, around Delancey Street. Bellevue Morgue is another locale used… For those scenes Jules Dassin, director of The Naked City, and a cameraman worked right out on top of the bridge. Who said it’s fun to make movies?”

No mention of Weegee…
