The Lineup - 1958 - 6/10

Lean film spinoff from old (lost?) 50’s TV show called San Francisco Beat.
Don Siegel directs retrieval caper of twin hoods fetching merchandise smuggled in by innocent tourists.
Eli Wallach terrific as barely restrained, borderline psychotic killer.
Narrative sorta ho-hum, with cops a step behind bad guys. Good use of Bay locations.
