Movie Info

Produced by the same team responsible for MGM's Crime Does Not Pay short subjects, Main Street After Dark is an energetic crime melodrama with a topical wartime theme. The film's criminal element is a family of pickpockets, who've been fleecing visiting servicemen. The crooks are challenged by a civic clean-up committee, and are brought to justice by the time the film's allotted 57 minutes have run their course. Only MGM could produce a "B" picture with a star lineup including Edward Arnold, Hume Cronyn, Dan Duryea and Audrey Totter. Main Street After Dark also provided a good showcase for newcomer Gloria Grahame as the prettiest of the pickpockets.more

Critic Reviews for Main Street After Dark

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

This is nothing more, really, than a feature-length 'Crime Does Not Pay' film which lacks both the interest and the tingle of its briefer counterparts.

This snappy crime B film was made by the same people who made MGM's Crime Does Not Pay series.
