                                                                             GUMSHOE (1971). Rated 8/10.

Albert Finney is a bingo caller. He fantasises about being Humphrey Bogart. Giving a Sam Spade type narration and wearing a trenchcoat. He trawls greasy spoon cafes and darkened alleyways on the trail of a character called the Fat Man. This film comes across as both a spoof and a homage to the 1940s private eye movies. The music is also evocative of that period. This is a crime comedy which gives respect to the genre that it's spoofing.

                                                                  LOVE IS COLDER THAN DEATH (1969). Rated 7/10.

This is Fassbinder's low-budget directorial debut. Anyone who likes Jean Luc Goddard's crime films could go for this one.

The plot is sparse so not recommended for anyone who likes plenty of action. I enjoyed the comic moments. I got to know the characters of the small time crooks through their boredom of their existence. It might be me but I didn't quite get why the syndicate put a number on the life of the prostitute. I recommend it for anyone who likes an unusual crime film.

                                                                                   ALIBI MARK (1937). Rated 6/10.

I have to admit that I was drawn to this by it's intriguing title. TCM have got this. It's also on You Tube. It is only a 13 minute cheapie but I couldn't resist adding it to my crime list. It's about a homeless man who gets accused of murder.

It illustrates the Great Depression era when people hitched free rides on trains. By people who had been cast adrift in that period.
