  1. Side Street

    Side Street is an American crime film noir/police procedural directed by Anthony Mann. The motion picture was filmed on location throughout New York City and culminated in one of the first modern car chases, prior to 1968's Bullitt. Much of the story is set in the vicinity of the long-demolished Third Avenue El, a favorite location of the few films made in the city during that era. The cast features Farley Granger and Cathy O'Donnell for the second and last time; their earlier film was the noted noir They Live By Night.
