Crime

Prison Break (1938)

Joaquin Shannon confesses to a murder he didn’t commit. He gets a year in prison to start for manslaughter. It gets hard to be on good behavior.

Drama

Whistle Stop (1946)

Here’s a 1946 black and white movie starring George Raft and Ava Gardner shot in and in the film noir style, but without really being a film noir. At least I don’t think so. You could argue with me.

Crime

Cold Sweat (1970)

Charles Bronson plays Joe Martin. Joe has a jaded past, but has settled down and become a fisherman married to Liv Ullman. Some of his old army buddies look him up and want him to smuggle heroin in his fishing boat. Joe isn’t too happy about this. This is a suspense film and has a lot of good car chase scenes.
