Ernie Driscoll: There are worse things than murder. You can kill someone an inch at a time.

Here’s today’s offering, 99 River Street.

Cab driver and ex-boxer Ernie (John Payne) discovers his wife Pauline (Peggie Castle) has been cheating on him. Ernie is approached by actress friend Linda (Evelyn Keyes), who says that she needs his help because she killed a man during an audition. After rushing to the theater, Ernie discovers that Linda’s desperate tale was the audition. As if that humiliation isn’t enough, Ernie is then framed for Pauline’s murder by her lover, jewel thief Victor Rawlins (Brad Dexter).

Check out the trailer below.  If you like, check out the movie tonight @ 11PM CST on TCM or tomorrow morning @ 9AM CST.  Have a good one.
