Summary
Act of Violence (1948): Ex-GIs are on a collision course in a crisp tale directed by Fred Zinnemann (The Day of the Jackal). Mystery Street (1950): CSI Noir: John Sturges (The Great Escape) helms a procedural whodunit in Boston environs. Crime Wave (1954): A hardboiled cop: Sterling Hayden (The Asphalt Jungle) heads an L.A. manhunt. Decoy (1946): A drop-dead dame: femme fatale Jean Gille revives her hunk from the dead (!) because he knows where the loot is buried. Illegal (1955): D.A. Edward G. Robinson turns to defending lowlifes in a snappy remake of The Mouthpiece. The Big Steal (1949): On the lam, down Mexico way: Out of the Past's Robert Mitchum and Jane Greer reteam, Don Siegel directs. They Live by Night (1948): In love ... in danger. Thugs force lovebirds Farley Granger and Cathy O'Donnell to be accomplices. Side Street (1950): The duo returns as struggling Manhattan marrieds who unwittingly get their hands on mob dough. Where Danger Lives (1950): a corpse behind. A dead end ahead. Woozy Robert Mitchum and Faith Domergue are on the run. Tension (1950): Genre icon Audrey Totter is bad to the bone. But milquetoast hubby Richard Basehart may be worse!
