TCM's Film Noir of the Week for Saturday Night-Sunday morning at Midnight ET is The Man Who Cheated Himself (1950). It stars Lee J. Cobb, John Dall, and Jane Wyatt cast against type as the femme fatale.
 

 

The Man Who Cheated Himself has a typical noir plot—a good cop goes bad for a woman. Cobb’s homicide detective has an affair with Wyatt, who thinks her estranged husband is going to kill her. She shoots the husband, and has Cobb cover up the crime.
 

 

Dall plays Cobb’s younger brother, who is also a detective, and both are assigned to the case. Cobb’s character tries to steer him away from the truth.
 

 

TCM repeats the film at 10 a.m. ET, Sunday, June 25.

TCM's Film Noir of the Week for Saturday Night-Sunday Morning at Midnight ET is Armored Car Robbery (1950), starring Charles McGraw and William Talman.

Richard Fleischer directs, as usual he gets a lot of plot in a 67 minute film.

McGraw is the detective. Talman plays a vicious killer who plans the heist with low level crooks Steve Brodie, Gene Evans, and Douglas Fowley. Adele Jergens is the stripper femme fatale two-timing the sap played by Fowley with Talman.

A lot of location filming showing Los Angeles circa 1950.

It repeats on TCM Sunday morning, July 1, at 10 am ET.
