From 1947 thru 1957, a six-pack of forgotten film noirs that you won't want to miss. Murder, Mystery and Scandal…it’s all here! This incredible set includes: PORTLAND EXPOSÉ, THEY WERE SO YOUNG, LOAN SHARK, ARSON INC., SHADOW MAN, SHOOT TO KILL. Some first time on video and/or DVD.

PORTLAND EXPOSÉ:
In the 1950’s LIFE Magazine printed a blistering exposé on the rampant sin, crime and Teamsters-controlled corruption that at the time had a stranglehold on Portland, Oregon. Producer Lindsley Parsons seized upon the considerable publicity and assembled a cast of great character actors for the starring roles. Although the film crew was threatened with physical violence, the result is a dark and gritty filmed-on-location crime drama that contains considerable violence for a 1950’s movie, most notably a violent rape scene with the Frank Gorshin character and a teenage girl.

THEY WERE SO YOUNG:
Five European models arrive in Rio de Janeiro and become trapped in a white slavery ring. An exciting crime melodrama with Raymond Burr at his villainous best!

LOAN SHARK:
Tough ex-con George Raft is hired by a factory owner and a union leader to help smash a loan-sharking mob preying on their employees. To obtain the necessary evidence, Raft puts his life on the line by joining the gang.

ARSON INC.:
A Bureau of Fire Investigation agent goes under cover to confront a ruthless arson ring that has left a trail of bodies, burned out buildings with various and sundry carnage!

SHADOW MAN:
A saloon owner falls in love with the abused wife of a heavy gambler. He is snared into a web of intrigue when an ex-girlfriend is found murdered in his apartment.

SHOOT TO KILL:
A tale of plotting and counterplotting commences after the new district attorney and an escaped gangster are killed in a car crash!
