    A mousy druggist (Richard Basehart) married to a two-timing tramp (Audrey Totter) contrives to kill his wife's lover (Lloyd Gough) in this absorbing 1950 noir directed by the underrated and soon-to-be-blacklisted John Berry (He Ran All the Way). more...

  • This Gun for Hire (NR)

    The movie that made Alan Ladd a star, this 1942 adaptation of the Graham Greene thriller pits paid gunman Ladd against the mobster who double-crosses him, with Veronica Lake as the girl next door. more...
  • This Is Not Chiraq
  • This Is Not Chiraq

    Produced as a TV pilot, this 2015 drama opens with a montage of Chicago's architectural gems, set to Sinatra singing "My Kind of Town," that seems more appropriate to a travel website. more...
  • The Thomas Crown Affair (R)

    It's no doubt dated now, but this heist movie starring Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway was considered pretty hot stuff back in 1968. more...
