6/8/1950 Armored Car Robbery released
June 8, 1950. This was the release date for Armored Car Robbery, a movie starring the legendary Charles McGraw and Adele Jergens. Not legendary? Well, third place went to William Talman, who later played Hamilton Burger in ten zillion episodes of Perry Mason.
Apparently the clever robber is outsmarted by a cop using the latest 1950-cop technology. Also the movie seems confused as to whether it is taking place in New York or Los Angeles. But we all have days like that.
