Classic Crime Movies and Television crime dramas online.


Chase, The (1946)

Bob Cummings (Love that Bob) stars as a World War II veteran Chuck Scott, who has bad dreams. He gets a job driving for a mobster, and falls in love with his wife. It gets film noir from there.


Charade (1963)

Audrey Hepburn stars as Reggie targeted by men for her murdered husbands fortune, Cary Grant plays Peter Joshua, a charming bachelor whom Reggie. With his help, Reggie tries to unravel the secrets to her husband’s hidden fortune in her ditsy cocktail sipping 1963 performance. Walter Matthau plays a convincing villian in his best sardonic style. It’s what you expect of all of these actors.


Lady In the Death House (1944)

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.

Johnnie Bradfield (John Garfield) is a boxer falsely accused of murder. He disappeared and is presumed dead. The only witnesses who could have exonerated him were his manager and girlfriend, both of whom have died in an automobile accident.


Gangster Story (1959)

This is a really low budget crime film with Walter Matthau. It makes me think it would have been a lot more entertaining if it had a budget. Still, it is Walter Matthau and he does get in some funny lines.


And Then There Were None (1945)

One of several film adaptations of Agatha Christie’s best-sellingmystery novel And Then There Were None concerning several people summoned to an island retreat by a mysterious stranger, only to meet their ends one by one.

Jekyll and Hyde (1990)

Michael Caine gives a tour-de-force performance as both the unconventional Dr. Jekyll and his alter-ego, the fiendish Mr. Hyde. Cheryl Ladd stars as his beautiful sister-in-law and the woman he loved…whom Hyde almost destroyed.

Princess Lin Hwa is killed by a poisoned dart on the way to see Mr. Wong. She was on a secret mission for Chinese fighting against the invading Japanese. She scrawls “Captain J” on a piece of paper, but there are two of them. Both of them are pretty shady characters.

She’s trying to get home, but she runs into some really shady characters including some spies that want to sink the US fleet while it’s in the Panama canal.
