Abstract:

The great St. Louis bank robbery: Psychological drama based on a true story that recounts the planning and thoroughly botched execution of a bank robbery in St. Louis. Steve McQueen plays a football hero who fatefully ends up with career criminals planning a bank robbery. No single gang member trusts the other, which proves fatal when the heist goes bad! Jail bait: Ed Wood's enjoyably bad attempt at film noir on a shoestring budget. Loosely patterned after the television series Dragnet, Jail Bait tells the story of Don Gregor (Clancey Malone), the spoiled, arrogant son of a successful plastic surgeon (Herbert Rawlinson), who is out for some kicks and excitement and hooks up with Vic Brady (Timothy Farrell), a career criminal. Opening with Don's arrest for illegal possession of a pistol, the film tracks his interaction with a pair of detectives (Lyle Talbot, Steve Reeves); his deceiving of his sister (Dolores Fuller) and his father; the robbery that goes wrong and leads him to murder an ex-cop; and his attempt to go straight, which gets him killed. That action, and Brady's attempt to force Dr. Gregor to alter his face, leads to a bizarre revenge.
