Gang Pursuits Witness at Hospital

Recommended Posts

TCM showed a black and white crime noir/gangster film one morning a couple years ago about a gang that was so desperate to silence a witness that they tried to assassinate her in a heavily protected hospital. There's even a shootout there. Does anyone know the name of this movie? I believe they were a gang of bank robbers, but I may be mixing the plot with a different movie on that matter. The film was pretty violent.

It may have happened in a few films. But for sure this happened in THE MOB (1951). Brod Crawford plays an undercover cop whose girlfriend is kidnapped and held hostage at the hospital. There's a shoot-out in a hospital room.

That's not the movie, but I'll still check it out. Thanks!

Slightly more details: the climax is at the hospital and the remnant of the gang gets wiped out along with a few others. It's a pretty grim movie.

I think he/shes talking about Steve Cochran's Highway 301 (1950).

Thanks Joe. I haven't ever watched this one. And I like Steve Cochran.
