Part of Warner's Film Noir Vol. 4 collection, Andre DeToth's Crime Wave is an almost perfect example of a nice tight little crime film. Starring the great Sterling Hayden and a wonderful cast of character actors including Charles Buchinsky (Bronson), Ted De Corsia, Dub Taylor and of course Timothy Carey. In the words of Lt. Sims (Hayden) - "What do you want, Christmas everyday ....?".
Paired on a DVD with the whacked out and totally demented Decoy starring Jean Gillie, who plays the ultimate evil female noir lead.
