Crime of the Century is a 1946 American crime drama directed by Philip Ford.


Hank Rogers is released from prison after serving time for a minor crime. He arranges to meet his brother Jim, a newspaper reporter, in a bar, where Hank is distracted by attractive Audrey Brandon. His brother doesn't show up, and at Jim's apartment, Audrey drugs his drink, rendering Hank unconscious.

With his brother missing, Hank tracks him to the mansion of a wealthy industrialist, whose daughter Margaret Waldham eyes him suspiciously. Hank ultimately finds that the industrialist is dead, but being kept on ice by Margaret and her cronies, who also have made Jim their prisoner. Hank rescues his brother with Audrey's help, whereupon Jim jokingly invites him to meet again later at the same bar.
