Movie Info

Army officer Duke Halliday (Robert Mitchum) is headed to Mexico to track down a con artist named Jim Fiske (Patric Knowles). Along the way, he meets the beautiful Joan Graham (Jane Greer), who, like Halliday, was double-crossed by the shifty Fiske for a large sum of money. Complicating their search is Vincent Blake (William Bendix), a military man out to get Halliday, and Ortega (Ramon Novarro), a police inspector who is patiently waiting to see how the various conflicts play out.

Audience Reviews for The Big Steal

    As a huge fan out Out of the Past, this film which reunited Robert Mitchum and Jane Greer was a must for me to screen. Not at all disappointed, as the chemistry between both stars sizzles. Also interesting as the third feature directed by Don Siegel.

    Don Seigel gives with a little advertisement for Mexican tourism as a chase for stolen Army money breaks over Mexico's highways. This isn't noir, or even a chase film (although it could apply to either), but rather an excuse for Greer and Mitchum to make with the goo-goo eyes at each other. Seigel throws in a fist fight or two lest the gents get too impatient. Decent. John Qualen, character actor extraordinaire, drops his nearly ever-present Swede accent for one movie, reason enough to watch!

    This is the second movie in a Film Noir Collection and its quite good. Robert Mitchun stars as Duke Haliday who appears to be on the run, chasing him is Army officer Captain Blake (William Bendix). It appears that Mitchum stole 300,000 dollars, this movie having been made in 1949 that's a huge chunk of change, but did he really steal it. Watch to find out, you will not be sorry, 4 1/2 stars

    A sort of round-about chase movie with an interesting cast and story. I liked it.
