Pickup on South Street Sam Fuller, 1953

Richard Widmark, who never met a sneer he didn't like, picks the pocket of some random girl, but then it turns out what he stole was actually kinda important. Some commie business or other. Then everything gets loopy. More attitude than anything else, Widmark goes around trying to find out what he's got, sell it to the highest bidder and make with the dough, all at the cost of the good ole USA. Even when you think he's going straight, he just goes right back. His kisses tell nothing but lies, his looks tell you nothing of his plans, until you're betrayed and find out. Thelma Ritter then shows up, classes up the joint for a while and lends gravitas to the proceedings, but then Widmark leers some more and drags us right down the gutter. Forceful, gutsy and probably crazy.
