Original TFD Introduction by Dana Hersey. In "Kansas City Confidential," four robbers hold up an armored truck, getting away with over a million dollars in cash. Joe Rolfe (John Payne), a down-on-his-luck delivery driver who is accused of involvement in the heist, sets out to discover who set him up and to exact revenge. He follows a trail that leads him to a web of hired killers and corrupt police in Mexico. "Kansas City Confidential" was the source of inspiration for Quentin Tarantino's "Reservoir Dogs." An imaginative film noir classic, this is a fast-paced and highly entertaining gem! (BW)
