They Live By Night (1949)

An excellent Nicholas Ray directed film noir starring Farley Granger Cathy O’Donnell and Howard Da Silva. Like all film noirs Granger plays a somewhat innocent man who gets caught up in circumstances which he seems hopeless to avoid that get him deeper and deeper in trouble with the law. O’Donnell is his love interest who’s also the sister of one of the criminals (Da Silva) with whom he gets involved. The young lovers try to escape the life of crime and live on the money they’ve got but Da Silva catches up with them insisting that he pull "one more job" with him. Byron Foulger appears uncredited as the owner of the cabin where the two try to hide out. Director Ray adapted Edward Anderson’s Thieves Like Us novel; Charles Schnee wrote the screenplay.
