Trapped (1949) - B&W - 79 min

A very good counterfeit bill is once again being passed and the US Treasury is out to find and destroy the plates. So they work a deal with Tris Stewart (Lloyd Bridges) who is in jail for counterfeiting and he might know where those plates are. Tris goes along with it, and then escapes. Classic film noir suspense from the late 1940s - featuring Lloyd Bridges, father of Beau and Jeff Bridges, and the Dad on Sea Hunt. And no one cuts his air hose.
