    A crime film in the tradition of the great Fritz Lang (Fury) and Anthony Mann
    (Strangers in the Night), Try And Get Me is a taut tale directed by Cyril
    Endfield (Sands of the Kalahari) inspired by actual events.
    Based on the Jo Pagano novel The Condemned (itself co-opting the real-life
    Brooke Hart kidnapping and murder case), Try and Get Me stars Lloyd
    Bridges (TV’’s Sea Hunt) as the deranged, cold-as-ice Jerry Slocum, and
    Frank Lovejoy (In a Lonely Place) as Howard Tyler, Jerry’’s unwitting
    Howard’s life begins to spiral out of control when he’s sucked into a
    kidnapping plot that turns tragic. Richard Carlson (Creature from the Black
    Lagoon) portrays Gil Stanton, a gung-ho journalist who may have crossed
    ethical boundaries when his series of newspaper articles leads to even
    further tragedy.
    Try And Get Me is a first-rate noir with more on its mind than thrills –– which
    there are plenty of –– as it navigates heady themes such as journalistic ethics
    and vigilante justice. The film also stars Kathleen Ryan (Captain Lightfoot),
    Katherine Locke (The Snake Pit), Adele Jergens (Day the World Ended) and
    Art Smith (Letter From An Unknown Woman).
