About This Film

9 movies/3 DVDs

COUNTERSPY MEETS SCOTLAND YARD – When enemy agents obtain leaked secrets about a guided missile reservation, the chief of America’s counterspy division (Howard St. John) and Scotland Yard’s top sleuth (Ron Randell) get on an investigative trail which quickly leads to a reservation secretary (Gunsmoke’s Miss Kitty, Amanda Blake). “Suspense and excitement”–Harrison’s Reports. 1950|67 min|B&W|1.33:1|NR

RADAR SECRET SERVICE – It’s science versus crime when agents of a foreign power working with local gangsters (including Tom Neal) steal a truck loaded with secret atomic materials, and the members of the Secret Service’s new “radar unit” (including John Howard and Ralph “Dick Tracy” Byrd) use the “latest technology” to run down the lawbreakers. MOTOR PATROL: Roaring down America’s highways in the pursuit of justice, motorcycle policemen put the heat on a car theft ringleader who uses a legitimate garage as a front. When Officer Bill Henry is killed in the line of duty, rookie Don Castle, the fiancé of Henry’s sister, gets him assigned to the case and infiltrates the gang. 1950|60 min.|B&W|1.33:1|NR

MR. DISTRICT ATTORNEY (1941): When Harvard Law School graduate P. Cadwallader Jones (Dennis O’Keefe) bungles his first assignment in the D.A.’s office, he is next assigned the make-work job of reviewing the closed case of a crooked city official (Peter Lorre) who vanished with a stolen $100,000. The cold case suddenly gets hot when the money begins to reappear, and a series of brutal murders ensues! There’s plenty of fast-moving action in this crime melodrama laced with humor. 1941|69 min.|B&W|1.33:1|NR

WESTERN PACIFIC AGENT – A “modern Western,” set in the year it was released (1951). The railroad assigns its top agent Kent Taylor to investigate a payroll robbery and the murder of a paymaster. Meanwhile, the felon’s father (Morris Carnovsky) is also desperately trying to convince the wayward boy (Mickey Knox) to forsake his life of crime. 1950|64 min.|B&W|1.33:1|NR

HIGHWAY 13 –  It’s murder on wheels when a trucking company loses several vehicles in a series of mysterious crashes–and a company honcho dies in a road accident that is equally inexplicable.  Truck driver Robert Lowery soon finds himself enmeshed in the whodunit, which involves a café truck stop, an ex-gangster mechanic and indications of sabotage.  This film was produced in 3 days!  1948|60 min.|B&W|1.33:1|NR

THE TREASURE OF MONTE CRISTO – A web of death, intrigue and daring love entwines merchant seaman Glenn Langan, a descendent of the Count of Monte Cristo, as he searches modern-day San Francisco for the fortune in long-missing jewels to which he is the rightful heir. Crooked lawyers, a murder and a frame-up are among the obstacles thrown in his path. Great location photography. 1949|79 min.|B&W|1.33:1|NR

ROARING CITY – Private eye Dennis O’Brien (Hugh Beaumont) will do anything for a dame or a dollar, tackling two more assignments filled with pistol-point suspense. The first involves a “fixed” fight, double-crosses and, of course, murder. Later, his reward for hiring out to pose as a young beauty’s husband is a knockout blow to the head and a false murder charge!  1951|59 min.|B&W|1.33:1|NR

SKY LINER – Attention, Homeland Security! It’s GRAND HOTEL in the air as the usual wild assortment of travelers (movie actress, eloping couple, child singer, spinsters, crooks, more) board a LaGuardia Airport flight, unaware that other passengers might be spies and counter-spies, complete with secret documents, poison and elaborate plans to engage in international espionage!  1949|63 min.|B&W|1.33:1|NR
