Borderline (1950) Fred MacMurray


 William A. Seiter


 Devery Freeman (story and screenplay)


 Fred MacMurrayClaire TrevorRaymond Burr

Borderline is a love story between two cops pretending to be hoods. The catch is neither one knows the other is a copper. Borderline is a good story with some clever dialogue like, "...we take the cage and give them the bird". Raymond Burr has a supporting role as Pete Ritchie the drug smuggler. Other notable cast include, Morris Ankrum, Roy Roberts, Gene Coogan and Charles Lane. You know what the payoff is going to be before the end, still Borderline is a good film noir.  ★★★
