About This Film
Overview

A 3 disc six-pack of forgotten film noirs that you won’t want to miss. Murder, Mystery and Scandal…it’s all here!

PORTLAND EXPOSÉ – In the 1950’s LIFE Magazine printed a blistering exposé on the rampant sin, crime and Teamsters-controlled corruption that at the time had a stranglehold on Portland, Oregon.  Producer Lindsley Parsons seized upon the considerable publicity and assembled a cast of great character actors for the starring roles.  Although the film crew was threatened with physical violence, the result is a dark and gritty filmed-on-location crime drama that contains considerable violence for a 1950’s movie, most notably a violent rape scene with the Frank Gorshin character and a teenage girl. 1957|72 min.|B&W|1.85:1/Widescreen|NR

THEY WERE SO YOUNG – Five European models arrive in Rio de Janeiro and become trapped in a white slavery ring. An exciting crime melodrama with Raymond Burr at his villainous best! 1954|80 min.|B&W|1.85:1/Widescreen|NR

LOAN SHARK –  Tough ex-con George Raft is hired by a factory owner and a union leader to help smash a loan-sharking mob preying on their employees.  To obtain the necessary evidence, Raft puts his life on the line by joining the gang. 1952|74 min.|B&W|1.33:1|NR

ARSON INC. – A Bureau of Fire Investigation agent goes under cover to confront a ruthless arson ring that has left a trail of bodies, burned out buildings with various and sundry carnage!  1949|64 min.|B&W|1.33:1|NR

SHADOW MAN (Street of Shadows) – A saloon owner falls in love with the abused wife of a heavy gambler.  He is snared into a web of intrigue when an ex-girlfriend is found murdered in his apartment. 1953|76 min.|B&W|1.33:1|NR
