Cry Danger

Synopsis: Rocky Mulloy, back in town after serving 5 years of a life sentence for armed robbery, hopes to clear his friend Danny Morgan who's still in prison for the same crime. It won't be easy. Even the witness who cleared Rocky thinks he's guilty; Danny's glamorous wife Nancy, living in a sleazy trailer court, seems lukewarm about getting Danny back; cynical cop Gus Cobb just wants to stir things up in hopes that the missing "hot" $100,000 will surface. Plenty of tough talk, night scenes, deceptive dames and double crosses in this typical film noir.
Director(s): Robert Parrish
Production: RKO Pictures

Here you are.

Why'd you do it?

Occasionally, I always

drink too much.

You went to a lot

of trouble.

Wasn't too tough.

I wore all

my decorations.

I've got plenty.


you'll get around

To telling me why.

Not eventually.

Right now.

You were up for life.

There was the 100,000

bucks kicking' around,

So I figured

you might be... grateful

If I got you out.

You not only picked

the wrong horse,

You didn't even get

the right track.

Life could be beautiful

with money.

Maybe you didn't

hear me.

I didn't pull

that stickup.

You'll be an awful big

disappointment to me

If you didn't.

So I'm

a big disappointment.

You didn't do it?

No. But I know who did.

Oh. Now I feel better.

You know, I think

I'm just like

That policeman.

I think I'll stick

around for a while

And see what

you're up to.

Then come on.

I want to introduce you

to a pretty girl.

Nice car.

I understand these things

cost money now.

I traded my left leg

for it.

Who's this girl

we're gonna meet?

Wife of a friend

of mine.

Sounds like

a dirty trick,

But I'm for it.

She's Danny's wife-

The guy I went

to jail with.

She really pretty?

She's out of bounds.

I said she was

Danny's wife.

Glad I never

met the guy.

Danny's one of

my favorite people.

Ok, Rocky.

I never was one

To argue with

a criminal type.

Ooh, and she has

to be the wife

Of a friend.

Run amok, junior.

That's the wrong girl.

Hello, fellas.

And a happy mother's day

to you, too.

I'm Darlene la Vonne.

I'll bet you are

at that, dear.

Tell me, where can

I find the manager?

Williams? Oh, he's

probably over there

In the office.


You fellas gonna

live here?

Maybe, if you're

a good girl

And go to church

on Sundays.

Aren't you

the fresh one.
