"Southside 1-1000" is a 1950 semidocumentary-style film, considered film noir. The film stars Don DeFore, Andrea King and Gerald Mohr as the off-screen narrator.


Based on a true story, the US secret service goes after a gang of counterfeiters, whose engraver (Morris Ankrum) has secretly constructed his plates while in prison. Federal agent Don DeFore poses as the counterfeiters' contact man in order to purchase enough bills to incriminate the gang.

Filming location

The final fight-to-the-death scene was filmed aboard Los Angeles' "Angels Flight", a cable-car service hanging 40 feet above the ground.

Critical reaction

A 1950 "New York Times" review praised the films actors, calling Andrea King "smooth as velvet." The review also notes "In the cinema's library of routine gangster fiction, "Southside 1-1000" merits a comfortable middle-class rating being neither especially exciting nor particularly dull."
