Film Noir, Crime, Drama – 1953 – Full Movie – 720p

1hr23min- Having lost his heavyweight championship match, boxer Ernie Driscoll (John Payne, “Kansas City Confidential”) now drives a taxi for a living and earns the scorn of his sexy but nagging wife, Pauline (Peggie Castle, “Invasion, USA”), who blames him for her lack of social status. Involved with jewel thief Victor Rawlins (Brad Dexter, “Vigilante Force”), Pauline is murdered by him when she impedes his ability to fence the jewels. Blamed for his wife’s murder, but with the help of a fellow cabbie (Frank Faylen, “Convicted”) and a beautiful actress friend (Evelyn Keyes, “Dangerous Blondes”), Ernie must track down Rawlins before he leaves the country. Terse, twisty, and brutally violent, with performances from both main and secondary characters that are never short of excellent, all seamlessly mixed with a raft of exhilarating Noir visuals, “99 River Street” is a treat not just for hard-boiled Noir fans, but for any fan of cinema greatness.
