Decoy (1957)

This little gem is Beverly Garland playing a police woman in the 1950’s. It was filmed in New York city and places this brave police woman in some very seedy and dangerous situations. I really enjoy this show and think you will too.

Scar, The (1948)

If you wanted a really good example of a film noir from 1948, the Scar is for you. It was also known as Hollow Triumph. The main character is a guy named John Mueller and he’s assuming a new identity to avoid getting whacked by a mobster he robbed. But as they say, Irony can be pretty ironic sometimes. Of course, that is usually the plot motivation of a noir. This one sports really good production values, a decent plot and Joan Bennett.
