The Steel Trap (1952 Director: Andrew L. Stone, with Joseph Cotten, Teresa Wright and Jonathan Hale. The story is about an obsessed bank executive who steals cash from a vault and hightails it with his wife (who doesn't know what he's done) towards Brazil over a long weekend, with various procedural obstacles put in his way the film is entertaining but not very Noir. Some nice shots of TWA Connies taking off and landing held my interest for personal reasons. 7/10

This is a damn good movie 8.5/10

This movie has every characteristic of a noir, including voice-over narration by the Cotten character... except the visuals.  But it really feels like a noir with the situation, the tension involved in the plot, and the narration.


Oh... this definitely had an influence on an important scene in The Killing, but I won't spoil anything  Wink
