PRINCETON — The next Widmark Wednesday movie features Princeton’s own Richard Widmark as the cunning boss of a big-city crime ring being investigated by the FBI.

The film begins at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Princeton Public Library. Admission is free.

In the 1948 film noir drama, Widmark portrays a gangster whose shrewd, ruthless ways defy detection, until the FBI devises a scheme to infiltrate the gang.

Mark Stevens plays the undercover agent assigned to take down Widmark’s character. Co-starring are Lloyd Nolan, Barbara Lawrence, Ed Begley and John McIntire.

Widmark, a 1932 graduate of Princeton High School, acted in more than 70 movies from 1947 until 1991.
