Storyline

In this low-budget crime drama a convict gets paroled and does his best to start a new life with his wife. He doesn't have much room to stray because a hard-as-nails detective, who despises all crooks and does not believe they can ever reform, keeps a close eye upon him. The trouble for the ex-con begins when three former prison mates bust out of San Quentin and head for his home where they want to hide out. One of the fugitives is a dangerous criminal and the ex-con fears for his wife and so agrees to hide them. Later the fugitives go too far when they try to force the hero into helping them rob a bank.

Not bad but way too short.

This is a DVD extra included with the films "Crime Wave" as well as "Decoy"--two neat little film noir movies. It talks about the making of "Crime Wave" as well as how director André De Toth made the film. There are some nice insights about the film and the interviews with film critic/historian Richard Schickel and others are informative. There even are some older interviews with De Toth himself (who passed away five years before this video extra was made). But, and here is the important point, what's there is very good--but it's only about six minutes. Lovers of film noir and "Crime Wave" will be left a bit frustrated--wanting more. Still, considering it's free and is quick viewing, it does make sense to watch this after seeing the feature.
