*Double Feature* with ARMORED CAR ROBBERY on Oct. 16.

How bad does Steve Thompson (Burt Lancaster) have it for his old flame Anna (Yvonne De Carlo)? Bad enough to concoct an armored car robbery as an excuse to keep seeing her. Bad enough to cut a deal with her gangster husband, the always slippery Dan Duryea. Bad enough to see his scheme through to the bitter, bitter end. Robert Siodmak, pound for pound one of the great directors of film noir, delivers the pure, uncut stuff here, infusing this classic crime caper with an intoxicating aura of doomed romanticism. Film noir's ultimate expression of amour fou. (Note courtesy of Noir City.) DIR Robert Siodmak; SCR Daniel Fuchs, from the novel by Don Tracy; PROD Michael Kraike. U.S., 1949, b&w, 88 min. NOT RATED
