Jingle All the Way...to Hell

She's perfect, in heat, and she's single            
But furs set this sweetie a-tingle
He turns crook to get laid,
But a schnook will get played
And it's murder he meets, not Kris Kringle.

Charles McGraw's "Honest Joe" Peters falls hard for "chiseler" Joan Dixon in Roadblock (Harold Daniels, 1951), one of many films noir set at Christmastime. Bit player Harold Landon is the bartender at Larry's Club (uncredited). Here's our previous look at a Roadblock Xmas. Our Pre-Code series will return after the holidays.
