Pushover (1954) Fred MacMurray - Kim Novak

A bank heist yields $210,000. Soon, sultry Lona McLane, girlfriend of one of the robbers, meets Paul Sheridan and has a torrid affair. When she finds out Paul's a cop, to save herself she sets out to corrupt him. He's a pushover.

This story is quite exciting as a crooked cop (MacMurray) tries to cover his tracks and makes mistake after mistake.  Kim Novak in her debut film looks beautiful. MacMurray really seems a little old for her, but that's Hollywood. This is not as good as Double Indemnity, but Pushover is a fine noir drama and highly recommended.★★★
