Harsh, intense, and powerful even by today's standards, Try and Get Me is barely contained by the darkest, outer boundary of "film noir;" the story is frightening, the images disturbing, and the actors compelling. When World War Two vet and family man Frank Lovejoy pins his hopes for the American dream on swaggering stick-up man Lloyd Bridges and his ill-fated kidnapping scheme, events begin to spiral relentlessly out of control. Be prepared for one of the most harrowing conclusions in Hollywood film history. And watch for Katherine Locke as Hazel, a plain woman whose longing is once again unfulfilled, evident in her eyes a lifetime of rejections.
