Sophie is the survivor of Nazi concentration camps, who has found a reason to live with Nathan, a sparkling if unsteady American Jew obsessed with the Holocaust.
Included among the American Film Institute's 1998 list of the 400 movies nominated for the Top 100 Greatest American Movies.
It was 1947, two years after the war, when I began my journey to what my father called the Sodom of the north, New York. They called me Stingo, which was the nick name I was known by in those days, if I was called anything at all.
When Nathan toasts Stingo on the bridge, as the shot pulls back you see first one then several cars from 1982, obviously an issue with how long they could hold up the bridge traffic for the shot, they needed to hold it up an extra minute or maybe lacked the budget to pay for late 40's cars to drive by instead. You can also see the lights of The River Cafe, a waterfront restaurant under the bridge that didn't open until 1977.
CBS edited 12 minutes from this film for its 1986 network television premiere.
