I’ll Get You For This
(Joseph M. Newman, UK 1951, 87 min.)

(Raoul Walsh, US 1949, 94 min.)
Double Feature! Tough guys come in all types. George Raft is an American gambler framed for murder and on the run in Italy. Next Joel McCrea is a convicted train bandit coerced into one last job and on the run from the law. Meanwhile, his attentions are divided between Virgina Mayo and Dorothy Malone. Based on hardboiled novels of the 1940s, these thrillers are scuffed with the grittiness of the period. Also showing is the historical Technicolor short LA CUCARACHA.
