Glenn Ford (The Big Heat, Experiment in Terror) and Barry Sullivan (Forty Guns) star in this atmospheric film noir tale of deceit and treachery in a mining town.

Down-on-his-luck trucker Mike Lampert falls for small-town femme fatale Paula (Janis Carter), and soon finds himself in the middle of a criminal plot that involves fit-ups, double-crosses... and murder.

Written by Ben Maddow (Murder by Contract) and photographed by the great Burnett Guffey (Decision at Sundown, The Brothers Rico), Framed is a stylish and effective noir.
