IA #59: Kansas City Confidential (1952)

 Kansas City Confidential (1952) on IMDb

Kansas City Confidential is the story of an innocent man caught up in an elaborate “perfect crime” who goes after the thieves to clear his name and claim the insurance company reward. Despite the title, most of the film is set in Mexico, where the gang goes to split their proceeds.

This film noir stars John Payne and includes Lee Van Cleef and Jack Elam as two of the thieves. It’s another reminder that you’re never too far from a good film noir in the Internet Archive Top 100.
