this is the usual concrete jungle/wild in the streets teenage delinquent drama, aside from cassavetes' intense performance, still a few years away from making his own films

Once you get past the stellar title sequence you'll probably spend most of the 90-minute running time wanting something very bad to happen to John Cassavettes' character. Crime in the Streets starts off kind of promising but it quickly turns into a Rebel Without Cause/Blackboard Jungle copycat with none of the charisma.

No poster? so rude. I almost cried at the end. "Richie! You're my brother...I love you! Ahh so geat. So this kid Richie, a lousy good for nothing hood, wants to kill a man who slapped em. But does he have what it'll just have to find out. Don't mind the corny voice over.

Crime in the Streets is a mid 50's film about a rebellious young gang that decide that must murder a man that fingered one of their gang members for carrying a gun. The plot is pretty thin and it's clearly stretched further than it should be. The performances are great, and that somewhat makes up for the thin plot, but you get the feeling that this would have been more efficient had it been 30 minutes shorter.

It's not a must see by any stretch, but if you're a fan of "Rebel Without a Cause" or other rebellious flicks of 50's this one is worth watching. Just don't expect anything great outside of the performances of James Whitmore and John Cassavetes.
