Gun-Play Date

A femme fatale playing the field
A flatfoot betraying his shield
A short lover's spat,
retort from a gat...
The potter's field coffin was sealed

Lee J. Cobb is a cop gone wrong for no-good girl Jane Wyatt in The Man Who Cheated Himself (Felix Feist, 1950). That's right, I said Jane Wyatt as the femme fatale! She's said to be terribly miscast--and just plain terrible. John Dall is Cobb's brother who is also a straight arrow cop.
