Crime Does Not Pay: The Complete Shorts Collection (1935-1947)

Look who broke out of obscurity jail.


Drama

Rod Lott

Suddenly

Shoot the president? Sinatra aims to do it his way.


Thriller

Rod Lott
From 1954, Suddenly is the lesser-known of Frank Sinatra’s two films centered on a presidential assassination. Cry “sacrilege” if you wish, but I actually prefer it to the later, more polished, highly revered The Manchurian Candidate. Yes, Suddenly is a B-noir treatment of the same theme, but the underdog proves ridiculously effective.

The Naked Jungle

Red and black antennas waving, they all do it the same.


Drama

Rod Lott
Charlton Heston comes second-billed to eventual Sound of Music baroness Eleanor Parker in 1954's The Naked Jungle. Nowhere in the credits is there room to list the true stars — or at least the reason for watching: millions and millions of mean-ass ants.

Street Trash

Now every day can be garbage day.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Street Trash is a semipolitical horror comedy that pulls out all the stops in an all-out effort seemingly to offend as many viewers as possible. Personally, I think that’s a good thing.

Running Deer

Brent Ryan Green’s award-winning short captures Native American life positively on film.


Drama

Louis Fowler

Most people toil away at film school for years before they even touch a movie camera. Not Oklahoma City director Brent Ryan Green. He went about it the old-fashioned way: learning by doing.
