Crime Wave


aka: w/ Decoy
USA 1946-1954, 74 + 76 minutes
Dir. Andre De Toth, Jack Bernhard
Genres: Classics / Film Noir


Aroview: Sterling Hayden burns a hole through the screen in this hard-boiled, viciously paced noir about a botched robbery and the ensuing manhunt. Considered a precursor to Stanley Kubrick's THE KILLING.

Also on the double-bill: DECOY, with Jean Gillie the seductress in a ploy to extract the whereabouts of $40,000 from a gangster on death row.
