X Marks the Spot (1942)

A cop gets killed when he runs into some gangster Marty Clark heisting a warehouse. This is a film noir, gumshoe gangster movie of the cheapest variety and it kind of rambles a bit. It’s still a fair movie and a pretty good example of the film noir genre.

I Spy (1965-68)

Robert Culp and Bill Cosby did this spy series from 1965 to 1968. Mixing humor with some serious subjects and a lack of spy gadgetry like you’d find in James Bond, this show is a blast from the past.

Witness to Murder (1954)

A woman’s (Barbara Stanwyck) sanity comes into question, after she claims to have witnessed a murder from her apartment window. It’s a pretty decent film noir.
