Pic of the Day: “Crime Wave” revisited

Today’s pic honors Sterling Hayden on what would have been his 96th birthday. He appeared in three films with Timothy: Hellgate (1952), Crime Wave (1954) and The Killing (1956). Here we see him and Mack Chandler apprehending Tim and Gene Nelson in the climactic scene of Andre De Toth‘s Crime Wave.

I also want to direct your attention to this great appreciation of Crime Wave over at NoirBabes.com, where Timothy is the featured star this week! Hayden brought any film he was in up several notches, just by his mere presence. He is one of the reasons I love the movies so much.  Happy birthday, General Ripper!
