He Walked by Night (1948)

Director: Alfred L. Werker
Actors: Richard Basehart, Scott Brady, Roy Roberts
Runtime: 79 min.

After shooting a police officer to death, Davis Morgan (Richard Basehart) finds himself constantly running from the LAPD, looking over his shoulder at every turn. With the help of a police radio, Morgan had more luck than expected when committing his previous robberies, but unfortunately for him, Sgt. Marty Brennan (Scott Brady) is very experienced in his job and quickly catches the criminal

Trivia: Scott Brady starred in the 1950s western TV Show Shotgun Slade. This is the first of many movies that features scenes in the long, winding sewer system of Los Angeles. In this sense, it can also be considered a historical film.
