Crime

Stranger, The (1946)

Edward G. Robinson pursues a nazi war criminal named Franz Kindler. He thinks it’s the kindly college professor played by Orson Welles. Only a dead man can link him to the crimes… or is it his own obsessions that will finally be his undoing. If you haven’t caught this film, this is a keeper in the realm of public domain films.

Deep in the South American jungles, plantation manager Barney Chavez (Raymond Burr) kills his elderly employer in order to get to his beautiful wife Dina Van Gelder.

Crime

Marie Galante (1934)

Marie Galante is a pretty French girl with a job delivering telegrams when she gets accidentally abducted by a drunk sea captain and ends up in South America. 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.

Classic TV

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.
