I love a good crime movie. The Classic Crime Collection offers a set of four movies, and as is sometimes uncommon in these sets, all four movies are really good.

Chronologically, the first movie is Murder, Inc., a story of Prohibition-era gangsterism done in a docu-noir style. The lead character is an ordinary enough guy who gets in debt to loan sharks to take care of some medical expenses; to work off his debt, he has to get involved in crimes. The show, however, is stolen by Peter Falk, however, in one of his earliest roles: he plays a vicious killer with no real scruples; I would have to think that Joe Pesci's Goodfella's character is partly based on Falk's role.

Next in the set is The St. Valentine's Day Massacre, a tale of the famous Chicago killing engineered by Al Capone. As is typical of a Roger Corman movie, the sets are low-budget, but the rest of the movie is good enough. Also done in a documentary style, this movie has all sorts of stars: Jason Robards as Capone, as well as George Segal, Ralph Meeker and Bruce Dern, along with an uncredited cameo by Jack Nicholson. While a decent movie, this is also the weakest of the four, principally because there are no characters with redeeming values; it is only a story of gangsters killing each other.

On the other hand, the third movie is not surprisingly the best in the set: Best Picture winner The French Connection. This was at least the third time I've seen this movie and - as with the best of movies - it gets better with each viewing. The story of a pair of NYPD detectives out to stop a drug shipment from being smuggled into their city, it features a top notch performance by Gene Hackman as the obsessed Popeye Doyle.
