    Can anyone help me identify a film I saw on t.v as a kid back in the 1960`s.It must have been made in the 50`s or earlier as films took a long while to get to t.v in those days.I saw it in black and white as my parents had a black and white telly so I don`t know if it was in colour.

    It was a gangster film and a woman was involved with one of the gangsters.The only other thing I really remember is a woman who was either the other ones friend or sister was becoming famous as a ballet dancer.A few times throughout the film she said"Always be nice to the gentleman of the press" or something similar to that.

    Secret People (1952) comes to mind but he isnt a gangster more political plotting the assassination of a dictator

    Thank you DocRobertpepper I had forgotten that I asked about this film. I saw it on T.V around 1966 my aunt was babysitting and let me stay up to watch the late film I haven't seen it since and didn't think I would ever find out what it was. I have had a look on Youtube and am almost sure it is the one
