Notes from the attic: Thieves' Highway

We just watched Jules (Rififi) Dassin's 1949 trucker noir in movie club. Nick comes home from he war to find is father has been crippled by a crooked San Francisco grocer. With his war pay he buys a truck and a load of apples and heads to market for payback. But will 36 sleepless hours, a lady of the night, and a host of goons get in the way.
Highly recommended.
