Summary
  • "Cornered" (102 min.) From England to continental Europe to Buenos Aires, ex-RCAF pilot Dick Powell stalks the Nazi collaborator who murdered his bride. But one fact constantly surfaces during his quest: no one can describe the mysterious man
  • "Desperate" (73 min.) Steve Brodie is a postwar Everyman who accepts what he thinks is an honest trucking job, only to find he's the driver in a botched heist that puts Brodie and his bride (Audrey Long) on the run from the cops and the cons who planned the job (including the chief thug Raymond Burr). Includes "Cornered" theatrical trailer
  • "The Phenix City story" (100 min.) Corruption, brutality and vice plagued Phenix City, Alabama, for 100 years, so who would dare to change it? Based on real-life events and filmed on location in what was called Sin City USA, director Phil Karlson's semidocumentary tells the jolting tale of those who risked their lives to bring the burg's syndicate of thugs and murderers to justice
  • "Dial 1119" (75 min.) An asylum inmate escapes to the city, where he takes hostages at a local dive, guns down a bar employee and warns authorities his captives will be next if the doctor whose testimony first put him away doesn't arrive within the hour. Includes "Dial 1119" theatrical trailer
  • "Crime in the streets" (91 min.) Following a turf rumble with a rival group, street gang leader John Casavetes tells his gang to do what they've never done before: kill a snitch
  • "Armored car robbery" (68 min.) Richard Fleischer directs this brute-force milestone about a deadly heist and the battle of wits and firepower between a fugitive gangster (William Talman) and his stripper moll (Adele Jergens) and a bulldog cop (Charles McGraw), out to avenge his partner's death, who uses hidden microphones, lab work and his own well-honed instincts to close the net
  • "Backfire" (91 min.) Vincent Sherman directs this gripping yarn about recovering war veteran Gordon MacRae's quest to prove pal Edmond O'Brien innocent of murder. Aiding him is his resourceful nurse Virginia Mayo. And a secretive doctor, a lively undertaker, a desperate gambler, a dying witness and a haunting Viennese melody all lead them to a shocking climax
  • "Deadline at dawn" (83 min.) A gangster's sister lies dead. All clues point to sailor Bill Williams as the murderer. Slated to depart for duty at dawn, the swabbie, aided by good-hearted dime-a-dancer Susan Hayward and affable cabbie Paul Lukas, has mere hours to prove his innocence
