Johnny O’Clock (1947)
March 2019 -- Just Say No(ir)

Directed by Robert Rossen | Dick Powell, Evelyn Keyes

When your business partner’s wife gives you a watch with a romantic inscription, the right thing to do is return it, especially when your partner’s name is Guido and you both run a casino. Johnny O’Clock’s attempt to give the gift back, however, results in a mysterious death. This whodunit offers plot twists, dangerous ladies, and great performances by noir icons William Powell and Evelyn Keyes.
