The Asphalt Jungle (1950) - Dir. John Huston
'Doc' Riedenschneider (Sam Jaffe) is a legendary crime 'mastermind'. He has just been released from prison. He has a new scheme for a million-dollar burglary. He enlists safecracker Louis (Anthony Caruso), reinforcer Dix Handley (Sterling Hayden), experienced driver Gus (recognize James Whitmore) and financial backing by Emmerich (Louis Calhern). Staffing is a problem for legitimate business as well as the nefarious types and a smooth heist becomes fraught with an accumulation of errors that spiral out of control.

Gun Crazy (1949) - Dir. Joseph H. Lewis
Even as a child, Bart Tare (John Dall) always loved firearms. After a brief stint in the military, his friends take him to a carnival, where he spies his perfect girl, Annie (Peggy Cummins). She is a sharp-shooter (of course) who similarly loves guns. It seems a coupling made in heaven until Annie becomes disenchanted with the lack of money. Like Bonnie and Clyde they begin traveling across the country supporting themselves with armed robberies. Annie shows her true colors and Bart is trapped; divided by his love and his morals.

Murder, My Sweet (1944) - Dir. Edward Dmytryk
Adapted from the Raymond Chandler novel 'Farewell, My Lovely', was renamed for the American market (assuming filmgoers might mistake it for the musical also starring singer Dick Powell). Private eye Philip Marlowe (Powell) is hired by Moose Malloy (Mike Mizurki). Moose has just been 'up the river' and is now seeking his former girlfriend, Velma, who has not been seen since his 7 year stint in prison. What Marlowe finds is that each lead he follows up confuses the case further and lies compound lies with an eventual discovery of larcenous activity including bribery, perjury and theft.

Out Of The Past (1947) - Dir. Jacquer Tourneur
Jeff Bailey (Robert Mitchum), seems to be an average non-consequential, small-town type with a Joe-job, but his mysterious past is soon revealed prior to a meeting with nefarious gambler Whit Sterling (young Kirk Douglas). En route he details to his girlfriend the story, seen to us as an intriguing flashback. In a previous existence, Jeff was a private detective hired by Sterling to find his mistress Kathie (Jane Greer). She had shot Whit stealing his $40,000 in the process. He traced her to Acapulco and falls for her big-time. Whit's rendezvous is an obvious trap.

The Set-Up (1949) - Dir. Robert Wise
Past-his-prime boxer, Bill 'Stoker' Thompson (Robert Ryan), is sure he can still win, although his beautiful wife Julie (Audrey Totter - hubba hubba) begs with him to hang up the gloves. His pragmatic manager Tiny (George Tobias) is sure he will lose his last match so he takes money for a "dive" from a tough gambler, Little Boy (Alan Baxter), but doesn't feel its necessary to tell Stoker. Suspense builds when Stoker is coming on in the fight hoping to beat Tiger Nelson (Hal Baylor).
