Armored Car Robbery / Crime in the Streets
Crack the case with a pair of film noir classics. In Armored Car Robbery (1950), two police lieutenants (Charles McGraw and James Flavin) play cat-and-mouse with a clever thief planning a massive heist. Crime in the Streets (1956) paints a dark portrait of gang violence. The first film, directed by Richard Fleischer, co-stars Adele Jergens; the second, helmed by Don Siegel, stars James Whitmore, Sal Mineo and future director Mark Rydell.
