William C. Thomas – They Made Me a Killer (1946)

All Movie Guide Review:
This Pine-Thomas Production was scripted by Geoffrey Homes (aka Daniel Mainwaring), best known as the author of the novel upon which the “film noir” classic Out of the Past was based. Robert Lowery plays victim-of-circumstance Tom Durling, in the wrong place at the wrong time when a bank robbery occurs. As the only witness to the crime, Durling is sought after by June Reynolds (Barbara Britton), who wants to prove that her brother, killed in the holdup, was innocent of complicity. Trouble is, the police have fingered Durling as their primary suspect, so he naturally wants to remain scarce. By film’s end, however, Durling and June have taken it upon themselves to track down the villains. Unusual for its time was the film’s depiction of its policeman characters, who are shown to be reasonable and intelligent rather than conclusion-jumping and dull-witted.
