"Pushover" (1954)

A tight twisty noir thriller that introduced the world to Kim Novak. Fred MacMurray is a cop on a stakeout watching her apartment, she's the girlfriend of a bigtime bank robber. They meet and he foolishly falls for her buxom blondeness (hence the title), and things go downhill quickly. It's "Double Indemnity" with a little "Rear Window" thrown in; not up to those filmic heights, but it will keep you guessing as to how it all turns out.
