An engrossing suspense film with Mickey Rooney, Peter Lorre, and Jeanne Cagney. Needing money for a date, Rooney borrows $20 from the cash register, starting a chain of events that includes car theft, burglary, and possibly murder. (Yes, that is Jack Elam in the bar scene.) Read more at the IMDB . (The video is interlaced in both the MPEG2 file and the Cinepack. If viewing with VLC, deinterlace with menu-path Video/Deinterlace/Blend.) This is a better copy than the previous versions that were...

The action begins when a car occupied by the corpse of a sleazy private detective glides down a hill and winds up in front of a police station. (The title of the film stems from the fact that police stations used to have green lights at the entrance.) Currently (2010-02-23) the movie is rated 7.2 at the IMDB ! Some of the stars are William Gargan, Carole Landis, John Ireland, Charles Russell, and Don Beddoe. Althought this film was already on this site, those who didn't want to download 4...

http://imdb.com/title/tt0021764/ Chester Morris, college football hero, gets a job on Wall Street for Thelma Todd's father. Fed up with the cons and piracy of Wall Street, he goes into business for himself, highjacking rumrunners' ships bound to Prohibition America. Delightful film with lots of plot twists and turns. Director Roland West's last film, after which he planned to spend the rest of his life with the soon-to-be-murdered Todd.
