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. (Note courtesy of Noir City.) DIR Richard Fleischer; SCR Earl Felton, Gerald Drayson Adams; PROD Herman Schlom. U.S., 1950, b&w, 67 min. NOT RATED
