Sixth Lupino feature and first "Film noir" made by a woman ever. Hardly sentimental and sharp edged thriller with very modern filming. The paralysed "eyelid" thing is very clever too. more info on http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0045877/

St. Benny the Dip is blessed with a marvelous cast. Dick Haymes, Lionel Stander, and Cosmo Topper himself, Roland Young, play a trio of small time hoodlums who disguise themselves as priests to escape a police dragnet. Finding themselves in an abandoned Bowery mission, the threesome take their masquerade to extremes, holding services and feeding the poor. This marvelous tale of redemption also stars a luminous Nina Foch as love interest and Freddie Bartholomew in his final screen appearance....

Steve McQueen stars in a gritty, downbeat, and sometimes savage heist movie that features a gang of very psychologically warped men and a story that's based on an actual crime. Warning: this film is devoid of humor, wit, cheerfulness, glamor, and mercy. It's grim to the brim. Some will find that viewing it is an unpleasant experience. This movie is in the public domain. Video-Cellar wrote: The film was originally published without a notice, but most prints currently in circulation are later...
