TCM’s Film Noir of the Week for Saturday Night-Sunday Morning at Midnight ET (and 10 a.m. ET Sunday Morning) is Too Late for Tears (1949), starring Lizabeth Scott, Dan Duryea, Don Defore and Arthur Kennedy.

 

Scott, the loot, and Kennedy
 

Scott and Kennedy are a married couple who have a bag containing $60,000 thrown into their open convertible. The money causes marital problems when Scott wants to keep it, and Kennedy wants to turn it in to the police.
 

 

Scott is a greedy femme fatale who wants to be rich. Duryea is a crooked P.I. in his usual bad-guy role. Defore is a mysterious stranger helping Kennedy's sister (Kristine Miller), who wants to know why her brother suddenly vanished.
 

 

Film Noir Guide: “Also known as Killer Bait, this is a fast-moving and enjoyable crime drama.”

This book is invaluable for film buffs: https://www.amazon.com/Byron-Haskin-Interview-Adamson-Directors/dp/0810817403/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1544171563&sr=1-3&keywords=BYRON+HASKIN Haskin was erratic and a bit of a BS artist, but the details of his career are fascinating, especially his stories about working at WB with the likes of Barrymore and Curtiz.
