The Big Steal

Ace action director Don Siegel helmed this 1949 Robert Mitchum thriller, only 72 minutes long, with an almost continuous chase involving four sets of characters in Mexico, and it’s pretty damn good. Mitchum was hauled off to jail on a marijuana charge during the location shooting, but somehow Siegel managed to paper over the continuity problems. With Jane Greer and William Bendix. (JR)
