Event Description

The Devil Thumbs a Ride: Lawrence Tierney, Ted North, Nan Leslie, Andrew Tombes

A driver picks up a hitchhiker unaware that he’s just committed a double murder and won’t mind a few more. Tierney’s rabid performance as the killer fits him like a glove.

Hell on Frisco Bay: Alan Ladd, Edward G. Robinson, Joanne Dru, Paul Stewart

A waterfront cop (Ladd) out of prison goes after the gangland big shot who was responsible for framing him—the one and only Edward G.! A well done, hard-boiled crime melodrama reminiscent of the great gangster films of the 1930s.
