This is in a recent DVD release of film noir telltales.
An excellent little featurette... Edwin Max ("The Judge" in "Follow Me Quietly") excels as the deadpan thief who doesn't hesitate to kill. Also excellent is Vera Marshe - equally hard-bitten and deadpan - as his mistress and accomplice in crime. William Schallert - Patty Duke's TV father - also has a minor role in this.
I also enjoyed the evocative street shots of a 1952 city.
What's really great is the unexpected twist ending... they just don't write 'em like this anymore.
Film noir buffs will like this one!
