Format: DVD
Excellent noir. The cinematography is classic noir, with assured useage of shadow and light, foreground and background and tight close-ups. The action is gritty and realistic, with the slapping around looking positively brutal and much more frightening than the current movie industry standard of blood splattered gore fests. Mr Elam, in fact, was probably cast because of how pathetic he looked being beaten up! The story revolves around two set-ups, one intended and one a secondary effect. "This is America?" my husband queried as our innocent hero is "worked over" in the Kansas City jailhouse. The action moves south to Mexico where our hero pursues the true criminals in order to clear his name. The extent of the crime and the reasons for it as well as the set up are all eventually revealed in the small Mexican fishing village that is too small to hold all these hot tempered men. The pace slows down noticeably in the village, the only major flaw in this otherwise crackerjack film noir which must have influenced every current young urban crime-film director. Highly recommended.

Format: DVD
United Artists presents "KANSAS CITY CONFIDENTIAL" (11 November 1952) (99 min/B&W) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) -- A hard-hitting film noir about a bitter ex-cop who arranges an armored car robbery with a phony florist's delivery truck -- Framed for the robbery, the driver of the real florist's truck, a hero in the war, hunts down the men who set him up to get his share of the loot, revenge or, if possible, a combination of the two -- It is generally agreed that Quentin Tarantino must have seen this movie before scripting Reservoir Dogs.

Here's part of the plot - Tim Foster (Preston Foster) recruits three criminals to help him rob an armored truck- Pete Harris (Jack Elam), Boyd Kane (Neville Brand), and Tony Romano (Lee Van Cleef) --- All star "Noirish" cast of characters and it's right up there with some outstanding dialogue film noir style.

One of the best John Payne noir films -- Definitely entertaining and you can watch this over and over again, catching some scenes you may have missed for full enjoyment -- In many of his films he was an ordinary-guy protagonists in the noir cycle -- Payne is tough, all right, but still shows the flop-sweat of fear; and he's smart, too, but because he's forced to be - what he's trying to hang onto is all he's got, that's gotta be noir at it's best.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I originally had this movie, along with many others, on a couple cheap film noir collections that I picked up at Wal-Mart. Of the 20 or so movies in those collections, I thought 4 were really great films that I'd like to have a good DVD transfer of. This movie is among my favourite film noir and when the price finally went down (around $10 or less) I ordered it. The picture and sound quality is far superior on this DVD, compared to the cheapie collections I had. Oddly enough, I did find and order the other 3 films as well... and one transfer was actually WORSE than on my cheapie collection. Highly recommended for film noir fans.

This is one of the best tough guy movies ever, with a real hard boiled cast,John Payne ,Preston Foster ,Jack Elam ,Lee Van Cleef ,Neville Brand. It also has great muscular direction by Phil Karlson. For years this film has been in the public domain so the copies available for purchase were often not that good. This is however is a good transfer. It comes with a Blu-ray,dvd, and a post card of the movie poster. All this for a very reasonable price,so I'm very happy with my purchase.

This film is a true classic, I used to watch it when it came on tv once in a while but I hadn't seen it in years and bought this dvd. The print is fantastic and really allows me to appreciate this film all that much more. If you like film noir you should definitely give this movie a viewing.
