STEEL TRAP, THE

Intro by film noir scholar Foster Hirsch on Oct. 15

Stuck-in-a-rut bank manager Joseph Cotten gives in to long-suppressed urges and returns home from work one Friday with $1 million in loot. But he can't shake his sense of middleclass propriety, which complicates his efforts to surprise wife Teresa Wright with a trip to Brazil (and its conveniently flawed extradition treaty), keep secret his recent theft and navigate a series of mishaps with their transcontinental flight from justice. One of unsung noir auteur Andrew L. Stone's most important works. DIR/SCR Andrew L. Stone; PROD Bert E. Friedlob. U.S., 1952, b&w, 85 min. NOT RATED
