Pic of the Day: “Finger Man” revisited

Today we take another look at Finger Man (1955), the nifty noir-esque crime drama directed by Harold D. Schuster. Timothy is sullen torpedo Lou Terpe, who “don’t like nobody” except his boss, Dutch Becker (Forrest Tucker).

Tucker, who early in his show-biz career acted as master of ceremonies for the Old Gayety Burlesque in Washington, D.C.,  used to date burlesque queen Betty Rowland. However, this is not the same Betty Rowland who portrayed long-suffering Edna Hilliard in The World’s Greatest Sinner (1962), as has been widely reported.
