The kid looks like Jerry Mathers in that Desperate Hours advert.

I remember seeing as a kid a Noir where the Noir Hero is a bad guy turned good at the end and the the film does take place around Christmas, but the Hero gets shot in a snowstorm and he dies outside on a set of stairs, I really remember liking it, but don't remember anything else about it though I did see it in a theater and it was B&W so it had to be late 50's early 60's. If it rings any bells give me a shout.

The hero sort of looked like Victor Mature, I'll have a go at the IMDb when I get a chance.

Sounds like Kiss Of Death.....w/ begins at Christmastime....w/ Victor Mature.........although a voiceover, by Collen Gray as the love interest, at the end, seems to indicate that he survives getting shot.
Of note is Richard Widmark's sensational screen debut as the twisted Tommy Udo.

I think you may be right Angel. I have that as part of my fox noir collection. Of course it could also be The Roaring Twenties with Jimmy Cagney in which he dies on the snowy steps of a church.

Its niether, it was the second half of a double bill, but I have "Kiss of Death" (no Snow) , and I know "The Roaring Twenties" (I think its a downpour rather than a snowstorm) very well, so its not them. The guy dies on snow covered stairs stairs in a snowstorm with a Christmas carol playing.

It could have been more of a gangster flick just don't remember.

Anyway mentioning the "Roaring Twenties" when you watch the film be on the lookout for a chase sequence where the vehicles go by a dead ringer for Edward Hoppers "Nighthawks At The Diner" pretty cool.

Hopper and Sloan are my fav artists from the "ashcan" school that compliment that whole 30's ,40's, 50's Noir look.

LA did you happen to catch "Dark City" sort of a sifi Noir, with a lot of cool noirish sets, it wasn't bad at all. And had Jennifer Connelly.
