Deadline at Dawn / Backfire

1950 NR

In Deadline at Dawn, a boozy sailor has until sunrise to discover who killed the shifty gal he met the night before, and in Backfire, a wounded veteran and his lovely nurse hit the road to clear a missing Army buddy of murder charges. Harold Clurman and Vincent Sherman direct the films in this gritty noir double feature; Gordon MacRae, Virginia Mayo, Bill Williams, Susan Hayward and Paul Lukas star.
