C&L's Sat Nite Chiller Theater: Pickup On South Street (1953)

An excellent Noir from the early '50s. Grab your popcorn!

Sam Fuller wrote and directed this classic noir with lowlife grifters, innocent dames, fallen angels, corporate theft and the international communist conspiracy. Thelma Ritter nearly steals the show with one scene that is mandatory viewing, but the whole thing is terrific.
