Crossfire review Product Description
CROSSFIRE is a rare 1940s indictment of anti-Semitism and bigotry. The theme is wrapped around a murder case with Robert Ryan as the hateful murderer.

Crossfire DVD Features
Years of police work have taught Detective Finlay that where there's crime, there's motive. But he finds no usual motive when investigating the beating death of a man. The man was killed because he was a Jew. "Hate," Finlay says, "is like a gun."
Robert Young portrays Finlay, Robert Mitchum is a laconic army sergeant assisting in the investigation of G.I. suspects and Robert Ryan plays a vicious bigot in a landmark film noir nominated for five Academy Awards?* including Best Picture. Edward Dmytryk (Murder, My Sweet) directs, draping the genre's stylistic backdrops and flourishes around a topic rarely before explored in films: anti-Semitism in the U.S. Here, Hollywood took aim at injustice?and caught bigotry in a Crossfire.
