Starring: Frank Lovejoy, Kathleen Ryan, Richard Carlson

Try and Get Me Story Line. Unemployed Howard Tyler is desperate for a job since he is married with children and his wife Judy is pregnant. When he meets Jerry Slocum, the stranger offers a job position to Howard. Soon he learns that Jerry is a small-time thief and his job would be to drive the get-away car after the heist. Howard improves the life of his family and tells them that he is working in the night shift of a factory.

Meanwhile, the journalist Gil Stanton that works for a tabloid is assigned by the owner to promote the thefts to increase the selling of newspaper. When Jerry kidnaps the son of a millionaire, he brutally kills the man and forces Howard to help him dump the corpse in the sea. Then he asks for ransom to the family. When the boy is found, Stanton incites the population telling readers that the abductors are monsters. When Howard and Jerry are arrested, a mob threatens their lives in front of the police station. How will the police officers protect the prisoners?

Tagline: A blonde with ice cold nerves and deep warm curves !

Try and Get Me is powerful stuff, even by today’s standards. Crime, punishment, yellow journalism, it is all addressed in this finely acted, fast paced drama. Bridges (like you’ve never seen him before) turns in an acting ‘tour de force’ as the ego-maniac, demented hoodlum that kills without reason. Lovejoy is the husband and father caught up in a bad period of economics. Carlson is the reporter that must learn that the power of the word is often as swift and deadly as that of the sword. This is high drama, done in the classic 50’s film-noir tradition.

Also known as “The Sound of Fury“.
