The movie, 13 West Street, following Noir Alley looks interesting too. Alan Ladd in an 1962 adaptation of a Leigh Brackett novel. From Turner Classic Movies- "Leigh Brackett's second career as a screenwriter spans the three decades between The Big Sleep (1946) and The Empire Strikes Back (1980). One of four crime novels written by a specialist in science fiction and fantasy, The Tiger Among Us is the story of an aerospace engineer who turns vigilante when attacked by a youth gang. Retitled 13 West Street (1962) and dumped into second feature Siberia by Columbia, this forgotten drama forfeits exploitative flourishes to carve a character study of a Camelot-era American whose devotion to work (in addition to rendering him childless) has cut him off from the world."
