Movie Info

Down-and-out family man Howard Tyler (Frank Lovejoy), in need of a break, falls under the charm of Jerry Slocum (Lloyd Bridges), a small-time criminal. Tyler and Slocum begin their partnership by pulling robberies at local gas stations, but Slocum wants to take the stakes higher by kidnapping a wealthy man for a hefty ransom. When the plan is botched and turns into murder, the two are caught and face the wrath of a bloodthirsty mob, stirred into action by a sensationalist reporter.

Audience Reviews for Try and Get Me

  • Jan 31, 2020
    Also released by the title. "Try And Get Me," this little known crime film is an unabashedly empathetic look at how an innocent, hard-working American is lured into the world of crime. It's also a cautionary tale at how the news media often paints portraits of perpetrators that lack color fairness. This was the second consecutive movie director Cy Endfield took on the Fifth Estate. Also, in 1950, "The Underworld Story," skewered powerful news moguls and career-thirsty reporters. Both films would be an excellent double-feature The Sound of Fury features a diabolical performance by Lloyd Bridges as the antagonist who lures the downtrodden Frank Lovejoy character into crime. It also offers a climatic scene that I found fabulously directed and filled with tension and drama.
