Inflamed passions, greed, robbery and murder are the sizzling ingredients which make director Robert Siodmak's powerful thriller Criss Cross catch on fire. Burt Lancaster stars as Steve Thompson, a hardworking armored car driver with a fatal attraction to his ex-wife, Anna (Yvonne DeCarlo), now married to notorious hoodlum Slim Dundee (Dan Duryea). Unable to keep himself away from her, Thompson secretly meets with Anna, only to be discovered by Dundee. To cover up their affair, Thompson convinces the hoodlum that he only met Anna to get Dundee's help in robbing an upcoming payroll shipment he will be driving. Dundee falls for the lie, which triggers a series of dark and foreboding events that ultimately lead to violence and death.
