armored car robbery

A bit too non disturbingly entertaining to be either a noir or a classic crime drama, this film is still nothing but fun to watch. Especially diverting is its crispness. It is 67 minutes of tight, well paced direction by Richard Fleischer, fine laconic dialogue by Earl Felton and Gerald Drayson Adams, the later of whom is for some reason not mentioned by host Eddie Muller, maybe 'cause his private life wasn't as interestingly lurid as Felton's, and good, understated performances from a veritable who's who of B picture stalwarts like Charles McGraw, Bill Tallman, Steve Brodie, Douglas Fowley, Don McGuire, Adele Jergens and, last but not least, Gene Evans who IS mentioned by Muller but is shamefully screwed out of a credit! Give it a B plus. P.S. Because it is a B picture filmed in 1950 there are of course great shots of downtown L.A.including Wrigley Field in South Central, home of the original Home Run Derby, as well as the Angels in the good ol days before Anaheim got confused with L.A.
Benny McBride's life down the slide

He vied, he tried, for his beautiful bride, whom would simply chide as she sighed and unknown to him, lied. He went for a ride, was opened wide, went to hide, again was opened wide, and died. If he hadn't, he would have been fried, all for his beautiful bride.
Armored Car Robbery (1950)
When we get older and finally retire, we start to watch the old movies that our parents use to watch. No more socializing and partying. But our silent way of just getting old. These movies are not worth putting on DVD, because there aren't many of use with the funds to buy them, as we are trying to survive off our lousy social security and limited pension. We all love TCM and feel that Mr. Turner is a considerate and honorable man, one of few that actually care about us. And I personally thank him for his combined efforts to entertain us. I would love to see the full-length movie, Armored Car Robbery (1950) on this site. I refuse to pay parasites like Warner Brothers or Time Warner (my former employer), as I cheated for 10 years, in overtime and worked without pay almost everyday for at least 15 minutes. A class action site reimbursed me years later.
Time For TCM To Get A New Distributor
Now, here is a superb film noir, "Armored Car Robbery", starring the incomparable Charles McGraw and William Talman, and directed by Richard Fleischer (who also directed the hallmark "The Narrow Margin", yet Movies Unlimited, upon whom TCM relies for home video, just can't seem to come up with it....TCM proudly airs this film, and it is astounding that it cannot be purchased from TCM...I can understand why it may not be found on other movie shopping venues....but not on TCM???? Please.....I did a Google search, and there is a guy out there, with a website who sells many of the films (such as this one) aired on TCM, yet not available for purchase through TCM....I wrote him, asking how he had "Armored Car Robbery", while no other venue had it..His answer: He taped it off a TCM airing and sells it on dvd! If Movies Unlimited can't get on the ball and start coming up with classic film noir like "Armored Car Robbery", perhaps it is time for TCM to find another distributor....And, while you are at it, you need to put that guy who sells bootlegs of films aired on TCM out of business.
