Sweet Smell of Success is a 1957 film directed by Alexander Mackendrick and starring Burt Lancaster, Tony Curtis and Susan Harrison. This film is about scratching (the you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours type)and two men without morals. One is a powerful newspaper columnist, who could create stars in minutes and destroy them just as fast. The other man is a ambitious and manipulative press agent who both admires and fears the columnist. The plot is practically irrelevant. It is the unique dialogue, the one-liners and colorful expressions that fascinate.
