Kansas City Confidential

This 1952 filmed directed by Phil Karlson has a good cast of Hollywood character actors of the period. It's a film noir with a happy ending tacked on. Because no one actor really dominates the film, the emphasis is on ambience and plot. No wasted motion in this well-made genre film about a guy almost framed for the almost perfect bank robbery who sets out to find out the truth of who really pulled the job.
