DRAGNET
1954, Universal, 88 min, USA, Dir: Jack Webb

This feature-length expansion of the hit TV series has taciturn Sgt. Joe Friday (Webb) and Officer Frank Smith (Ben Alexander) investigating the murder of an organized-crime bookie. Webb gets tougher-than-TV in his often brutal pursuit, backstopped by Capt. James Hamilton (Richard Boone) and undercover policewoman Grace Downey (Ann Robinson). A no-holds-barred version of the famed TV series, this is a rarely screened melding of mid-20th-century American history and vintage pop culture.

LOOPHOLE
1954, Warner Bros., 80 min, USA, Dir: Harold D. Shuster

One of the rarest films of the original noir era, this tidy tale of unjust persecution plays like a B-movie version of Les Miserables, transplanted to the streets of Los Angeles. An innocent bank clerk (Barry Sullivan), the fall guy in an embezzlement scheme, is pursued to the brink of insanity by a fanatically righteous insurance investigator (a memorably merciless Charles McGraw). Costarring Dorothy Malone.
