Odd Man Out (1947)
James Mason became a Hollywood star after this 1947 gripping chase movie. He plays IRA leader Johnny McQueen who's wounded during a botched bank robbery. He barely escapes and stumbles through the streets of Belfast, with the police quickly closing in. The film was remade in 1967, as The Lost Man, starring Sidney Poitier.
