When he died in 1947, producer Mark Hellinger had just begun pre-production on this crime-ridden love story that was supposed to be the L.A-based bookend to his New York policier hit The Naked City (1948). Thanks to the brilliant work of director Siodmak, CRISS CROSS remains perhaps the most darkly poetic rendering of amour fou in film noir. Burt Lancaster and Dan Duryea plot a daring heist, while vying for the sensual Yvonne DeCarlo. Union Station and Bunker Hill locations abound and don’t miss a young Tony Curtis burning up the floor of a downtown nightclub!
