The Wages of Fear

  |  

This classic is opening in a restored version starting Jan. 20 in selected venues around the country.

When the great French thriller "The Wages of Fear" (1953) was first released in America, it was missing parts of several early scenes -- because it was too long, the U.S. distributors said, and because they were anti-American, according to the Parisian critics.
