Summary
  • Cornered: An ex-RCAF pilot stalks the Nazi collaborator who murdered his bride, but no one can describe the mysterious man
  • Desperate: A postwar Everyman accepts what he thinks is an honest trucking job, only to find he's the driver in a botched heist
  • The Phenix City story: Corruption, brutality and vice plagued Phenix City, Alabama, for 100 years, so who would dare to change it? Phil Karlson's semidocumentary tells the jolting tale of those who risked their lives to bring the burg's syndicate of thugs and murderers to justice
  • Dial 1119: An asylum escapee takes hostages at a local dive, guns down a bar employee and warns authorities his captives will be next if the doctor whose testimony first put him away doesn't arrive within the hour
  • Crime in the streets: Following a turf rumble with a rival group, a street gang leader tells his gang to do what they've never done before: kill a snitch
  • Armored car robbery: A battle of wits and firepower between a fugitive gangster and his stripper moll, and a bulldog cop, out to avenge his partner's death, who uses hidden microphones, lab work and his own well-honed instincts to close the net
  • Backfire: A recovering war veteran and his resourceful nurse try to prove his pal innocent of murder
  • Deadline at dawn: A gangster's sister lies dead and a sailor is accused of her murder. Slated to depart for duty at dawn, the swabbie has mere hours to prove his innocence
