Introduced by Foster Hirsch

An early B-noir from director Richard Fleischer, Trapped opens with a voice-over homage to the Department of the Treasury but transitions to the tale of convicted counterfeiter Lloyd Bridges, offered early release in return for acting as an undercover operative. Location shooting in Los Angeles streets provides counterpoint to the film’s mostly confined settings, including a final sequence in an underground trolley-car barn. “Double- and triple-crosses come fast and furious, as no one’s sure who’s a crook and who’s a copper” — Noir City.
