Format: DVD
Only Burt Lancaster could carry this role. Known as a muscle man in previous movies, here, he plays weakness like nobody else. To be in love, in a noir, is a one way ticket to a bleak fade-out. Terrific build up and a devastating ending, this is a noir that sets the bench mark. Dan Duryea is a revelation. His sneaky, snake like performance makes you realise that there is no actor of his ilk around today that could carry such a role. Just watch him appear from the doorway darkness into the last light of the two doomed lovers and you are watching a final curtain ballet of death. As the cop sirens ring out, watch Duryea's face. This movie is a classic. PS; look out for TONY CURTIS, later to get equal billing with LANCASTER in SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS, in an early non-speaking, dancing role with the soon to be MRS. MUNSTER. ENJOY!

"I didn't come back on account of her. It had nothing to do with her. I wasn't going to go looking for her. I didn't expect to run into her. I didn't particularly want to see her. I was sure of that if I was sure of anything. Then from the start it all went one way. It was in the cards or it was fate or a jinx or whatever you want to call it."

Steve Thompson (Burt Lancaster) is a drifter, taking jobs where he finds them. He'd been married to Anna (Yvonne De Carlo) for seven months two years ago. He thought he had her out of his system when he returned to Los Angeles. He was wrong. He starts dropping in at The Roundup, an old hangout, telling himself he isn't there to see her. One evening he spots her there dancing. She's with Slim Dundee (Dan Duryea), a known gangster. The old story starts up again. In a way he sees what's coming. "Half the time you don't know what you're doing," he tells her, "the trouble is you always know what you want." An old friend, Detective Lieutenant Pete Ramirez, tries to tell him she's bad news. Steve's mother tries to talk sense to him. "You know, Steve," she says to him while he's getting ready to meet Anna, "you're a very nice looking boy. Out of all the girls in Los Angeles why did you have to pick on her?...A girl puts on a piece of silk and the next thing that happens, a fellow like you is sure he knows exactly what he's doing." Steve and Anna start to have good times, if good times means going to the beach or a movie or The Roundup. Then one night at The Roundup, waiting for Anna to show up, he's told she's not coming...she got married to Dundee. Dundee may be a criminal, but he has what Anna wants...money.

Then Anna and Steve start seeing each other again. Anna shows the bruises she says she got from Dundee. And Dundee is no fool.

Criss Cross is directed by Robert Siodmak and adapted by Daniel Fuchs from Don Tracy's novel. It stars Burt Lancaster, Yvonne de Carlo, Dan duryea and Stephen McNally. Music is scored by Miklós Rózsa and cinematography is by Franz Planer.

Steve Thompson (Lancaster) and old flame Anna (de Carlo) begin to rekindle their love, much to the dismay of those closest to Steve. She's now unhappily married to mobster Slim Dundee (Duryea), they plan to run away together but Slim is apparently getting wise to their affair. When the two are caught together by Slim, Steve quickly concocts a story that they were plotting an armored-truck robbery that he wants Dundee to be involved in. Slim notes it's near impossible, but with Steve working for the armored-truck company it opens the way for inside man possibilities. It deviates suspicion on the lovers, but this is only the start of their problems, for nothing is as it seems.

Criss Cross has come to be a favourite of many a film noir purist, a picture often held forward as one of the shining lights of the 1940's noir universe. But it so easily could have been so different given that the film's original producer, Mark Hellinger, suddenly died of a heart attack. The film under Hellinger's guidance was to be based around a racetrack heist, but with Hellinger's passing the project dropped into limbo and was sold off to Universal along with Lancaster and Siodmak as part of the deal. Although Lancaster was unhappy with the rewritten plot, his relationship with Siodmak had already been cemented three years earlier when they made The Killers, another of film noir's greatest triumphs.

A real nostalgia piece with some excellent footage of Los Angeles in the 1940's. Memoerable too for Tony Curtis first appearance in film, dancing with Yvonne De Carlo, with whom Curtis had a brief association. De Carlo is possibly the weak point of the film as she does not have enough acting skill to really sizzle as the femme fatale, although she looks the part. Towards the end the plotline gets rather weak and unconvincing.Lancaster is excellent though, but on IMDb thereare some interesting howlers related to the film. A good solid movie to pass the time on a rainy day.

Format: DVD
Universal Studios presents "CRISS CROSS (Universal Noir Collection)" (1949) (88 min/B&W) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) -- Steve Thompson (Lancaster) returns to Los Angeles after an extended absence --- He is a complete sap who chooses to blame his life's problems on fate (like many films noir, fate plays a strong role in this one, but Lancaster's character confuses his own inability to make a single good decision as the hand of fate, when he's really just a chump.) --- He immediately goes after his ex-wife Anna (De Carlo), not really because he wants her back, but because he doesn't want her to date Slim Dundee, the crook played by Dan Duryea ---- When he and De Carlo are caught together by Duryea, he explains that he was pitching a robbery to her, and he wants Duryea to help out --- They are going to rob the armored car company that Lancaster managed to get a job at (this is before criminal background checks) --- Duryea goes along with it, as does De Carlo, but we all know that things aren't going to work out for our hero --- A bleak but compelling film noir.

The film music gives us shades of a love story by composer Miklós Rózsa that could never be, but we knew that before the ending credits started rolling - after all, this is film noir.
