The Bowery Boys find themselves up to their scruffy necks in robbery and murder in this unusually dark and violent entry in the popular lowbrow comedy series.

Photographed by Marcel Le Picard. Directed by Jean Yarbrough. In B&W. 63 mins. 1949.

A young man, covered in blood and whacked out on cocaine is picked up by the cops. But he can’t remember a thing about what happened the night before or how that pretty young girl he was spotted with earlier turned up dead. A desperate escape in the night to find the truth offers only the dimmest hope. Starring Leo Penn, Robert Armstrong, Teala Loring, Elisha Cook, Jr. Photographed by Mack Stengler. Based on the story “Cocaine” by Cornell Woolrich. Directed by Reginald Le Borg. In B&W. 64 mins. 1947.

WHEN STRANGERS MARRY aka BETRAYED
An innocent young woman arrives in the big city to meet her new husband. But a series of recent mysterious, motiveless murders seem to have a strange connection to him.

Starring Kim Hunter, Robert Mitchum, Dean Jagger, Neil Hamilton. Photographed by Ira Morgan. Screenplay by Philip Yordan. Directed by William Castle. In B&W. 67 mins. 1944.
At 4:30pm only!
