Not only an inspiration for a porno, The Amazing Dr. Clitterhouse (1938) is highly entertaining noir-life. While researching the criminal mind, the titular doc (Edward G. Robinson) gets mixed up with a top fence (Claire Trevor) and her thug sidekick, Rocks Valentine (Humphrey Bogart). An ensuing power struggle between the charismatic doc and Rocks escalates the criminal stakes to murder.
