"Pickup on South Street" and "Where the Sidewalk Ends"
I saw two great film noir movies last night at the Stanford. Both were great, but I give the nod to "Pickup on South Street" (pictured above). In it, Richard Widmark plays a pickpocket who inadvertently steals a wallet containing some highly sought-after microfilm. And then the fun begins.
"Where the Sidewalk Ends" was also good, with a detective accidentally kills a suspect and tries to cover it up, but will he confess to the crime?
Don't know if they are on DVD, so you can look on Amazon yourself. I'm too lazy today...
