Product description

Nine disc box set of noir classics. In 'The Killers' (1946), after boxer Swede (Burt Lancaster) is gunned down by a pair of contract killers, insurance investigator Jim Reardon (Edmond O'Brien) sets about piecing together the motives behind the murder. In 'Double Indemnity' (1943) insurance salesman Walter Neff (Fred MacMurray) calls at the house of femme fatale Phyllis Dietrichson (Barbara Stanwyck) in order to renew her husband's insurance policy. An immediate attraction sparks between the two, and gradually Phyllis seduces Walter into conspiring with her to murder her husband. In 'The Big Steal' (1949), army officer Drake Halliday (Robert Mitchum) finds himself on the run after he is framed for a payroll theft. In 'Crossfire' (1947), detective Finlay (Robert Young) is appointed to investigate when Jewish GI Joseph Samuels (Sam Levene) is beaten to death. 'Out Of The Past' (1947) sees private detective Jeff Bailey (Robert Mitchum) hired by gambler Whit Sterling (Kirk Douglas) to find Sterling's girlfriend after she shoots him and takes off with $40,000 of his money. In 'The Blue Dahlia' (1946), Johnny Morrison (Alan Ladd) comes home from the war and discovers his wife, Helen (Doris Dowling), has been doing her bit on the home front, sure enough. In 'The Glass Key' (1942), local politician Paul Madvig (Brian Donlevy) who built his little empire by turning a blind eye and granting favours, decides to back the anti-mob reform candidate, Ralph Henry, in the governor's race after he gets a look at Henry's daughter Janet (Veronica Lake). In 'This Gun For Hire' (1942), a hit man (Alan Ladd) is double-crossed by nightclub owner Willard Gates (Laird Cregar). 'Farewell My Lovely' (1944) sees Detective Philip Marlowe (Dick Powell) hired by ex-convict 'Moose' Malloy to find his former girlfriend, Vera. Marlowe finds himself double-booked, however, when he accepts another job - buying back a jade necklace stolen from the young and beautiful Mrs Grayle (Claire Trevor), whose husband is a much older wealthy man. Little does Marlowe realize that the two cases are inextricably linked.
