INSIDE JOB

(1946, Universal. 65 min. Scr. George Bricker, Garrett Ford, Tod Browning. Dir. Jean Yarbrough)
This terse programmer is notable as the final credit of writer-director Tod Browning (Freaks), although he'd written the story years before it was made. Some of his distinctive traits are evident in the tale of newlywed ex-cons (Ann Rutherford and Alan Curtis) forced into a mobster's plan to rob a downtown department store. It's a B movie through and through, but one with clever business peppering a plot that consistently zigs when you expect it to zag. Featuring the stalwart Preston Foster as the dapper gangster. NOT ON DVD!


2:30
ARMORED CAR ROBBERY

(1950, RKO (Warner Bros.) 67 min. Scr. Earl Felton and Gerald Drayson Adams. Story: Robert Leeds and Robert Angus. Dir. Richard Fleischer. When his veteran partner is shot dead during a daring daylight robbery, LAPD police lieutenant Jim Cordell (Charles McGraw, at his toughest and most taciturn) vows revenge. Yes, it's that simple. But despite its meager premise Armored Car Robbery is a classic "B" thanks to Earl Fenton's ultra-hardboiled lingo, director Fleischer's briskly-paced knockabout tour of 1950 Los Angeles, and a cast of familiar supporting mugs (led by the reptilian William Talman) for once given center-stage. They relish every minute of it, and so do we.
