on South Street
Skip McCoy, a low-level crime figure, steals from the wrong purse and finds himself in possession of secret microfilm. Subversives and government agents are not far behind. Noir.
This is the last movie of a string in which Widmark played some of the finest sleazeballs ever to grace the silver screen. It follows Kiss of Death (1947), The Street with No Name (1948), Road House (1948), and Night and the City (1950).
