Kick-Back Friday: #35

Kick-Back Friday: #35


The title’s probably better than the movie itself, but Kansas City Confidential (1952) still offers solid noir fun. An ex-con, mistakenly nabbed for an armored car robbery, sets out to find the real culprits…and maybe the money, too. Hmmm.

Featuring the great character heavies Lee Van Cleef and Jack Elam, both of whom appeared in too many westerns to name.
