Dark City

Here is a 1950s film noir directed by William Dieterle starring a young Charlton Heston as a gambler. He and his crew lure a guy into a card game and fleece him, whereupon he hangs himself (the victim) and his psychopathic brother begins to take revenge on the gamblers. Heston must figure out what the psychopath looks like, and so begins to seduce the wife of the victim.

It is an excellent movie, though one I've never heard of before.

Never heard of it before either. I'll have to look into it. Did you see Orson Welles' "Touch of Evil", where Heston plays a Mexican?
