Movie Diary 7/3/2018

Ambush in Leopard Street (J. Henry Piperno, 1962). Standard B-movie rubbish, but the genre appeal and a watchable cast make it all right at one hour long. A group of experienced thieves, plus one newcomer (James Kenney, star of the revolting-youth picture Cosh Boy), plan a jewelry heist. One of the other thieves is played by Norman Rodway, who would shortly be playing Hotspur in Orson Welles’ Chimes at Midnight.
