Plot: KANSAS CITY CONFIDENTIAL is a hard-hitting film noir starring John Payne as Joe Rolfe, an ex-con who's trying to go straight with a job as a deliveryman for a florist company. Unfortunately, a gang of thugs (the sinister trio of Jack Elam, Neville Brand, and Lee Van Cleef) led by a criminal mastermind (Preston Foster) have arranged a bank robbery using a van that looks just like the one driven by Rolfe--and the deliveryman takes the fall for the heist. This leads to Rolfe's search for the real thieves, a trail that leads to Mexico and an unexpected love affair with the gang leader's daughter (Coleen Gray).
