CALL NORTHSIDE 777: When a classified ad grabs the attention of Chicago Times editor Brian Kelly (Lee J. Cobb), he sends ace reporter P.J. McNeal (James Stewart) to dig up new evidence in the 11-year-old case of a cop killer: It appears that Frank Wiecek (Richard Conte) had taken a fall, and been wrongly imprisoned for the murder. Although hard-nosed McNeal is initially skeptical, he eventually believes that Wiecek was, in fact, a patsy. And although McNeal hits one dead end after another, the avid newsman never gives up the search for justice for the innocent Wiecek.
FUGITIVE KIND: Valentine "snakeskin" Xavier (Brando) is a handsome drifter with a guitar and a past. Taking a job as a store clerk in Two Rivers, Mississippi, his strong and silent demeanor attracts not only the local party girl (Woodward), but also the shopkeeper`s exotic wife (Magnani). Soon, this explosive love triangle will ignite a powder keg of fury that could rock this small town to its very core.
THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW: Richard Wanley (Robinson) is no criminal, at least he wasn’t until he met “The Woman In The Window” (Bennet). From seeing her portrait in a storefront window to running into her in person, what begins as an innocent flirtation grows into something much more dangerous.
