The Small World of Sammy Lee is the dark, funny and thoroughly brilliant 1963 British-Jewish crime thriller directed by Ken Hughes and starring Anthony Newley, Julia Foster, Robert Stephens and Warren Mitchell. A Jewish peep-show compere races to escape the vicious debt collectors who chase him across the seedy underworld of London and the Jewish East End in this gritty and engrossing 1960s film-noir gem. With a stunning jazz sound track from Kenny Graham.
