Audience Reviews for Cry Danger

seriously underrated noir with dick powell in marlowe mode. always fun to see him play a hard guy with plenty of snappy dialogue, as seen in 'murder, my sweet.' terrific russian roulette scene!

Stella Dallas

Super Reviewer

Framed for a crime he never committed, Rocky (Dick Powell) is fresh outta' prison and looking for a little payback. Cry Danger is chocked full of all the elements noir fans slobber over. Powell is rock solid and Rhonda Fleming looks absolutely edible.

Randy Tippy

Super Reviewer


Average crime drama has competent players and a tight running time with some nice wry humour but it's pretty much run of the mill otherwise.
