The Perfect Crime . . . Almost . . .

Every good film noir movie has a couple of things that make it unique . . . first a man who thinks that the regular rules of law don't apply to him . . . he is smarter than the police and all of the powers that be. Our smart criminal always needs a sexy wicked woman to play to on the dark crime filled streets of the city. But of course, as smart and devious as our master criminal and his lady are, there is always the quiet, constantly working policeman who plods along seemingly in the dark, never understanding how close to him the criminals really are. Sometimes, like in this adventure, we watch the crime, and then discover the surprise of who the master mind really is, and watch them breathlessly as the master criminal executes his perfectly planned crime right under the nose of the detective. We want to shout at the detective that he is trusting the wrong person, that his partner is the devious man that he is after. But the criminal has planned everything perfectly . . . because he is usually one of the 'good guys' he knows exactly how the law will respond to the crime, and knows exactly how to plan the crime so that the law will be left clueless, unable to solve the burglary and murder. Ahhhh, but then the human element comes in . . . I think it was a Chinese man from many centuries ago who proclaimed that three people could indeed keep a secret . . . only if two of them was dead. When the time table is rocked . . . . when the unexpected and unplanned events happen . . . will the master criminal be able to respond correctly and escape the long arm of the law, or will he and his sultry lady come to the same end that movie criminals have come to for decades before . . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show as you discover how well our criminal has planned his perfect crime.
