Just happened to catch this classic 'film noir' thriller released in 1950 starring Ida Lupino. The real interest was the American Buslines ACF-Brill IC-41 featured prominently in a long scene. There was action inside and outside the bus, and the ABL driver had a good speaking role. This was in the period after 1946 when ABL had acquired Burlington Trailways, and Mo-Ark Coaches, with extensive routes from coast to coast and border to border, but prior to its being acquired itself by Transcontinental Bus System (Continental Trailways). The driver is in an ABL uniform, with the ABL cap badge depicted. The bus has the ABL Eagle with the red, white, and blue streamer trailing from its beak emblem, that Continental Trailways adapted as its own after buying ABL in around 1953. The emblem lasted into the 1970's, but where it originally read American Buslines, it later read Continental Trailways, and later still, either Golden Eagle or Silver Eagle.....
