Director Phil Karlson created some of the finest crime thrillers of the '50s, but he has never received the attention of Samuel Fuller or Robert Aldrich or Anthony Mann. Key Karlson films such as Scandal Sheet, 99 River Street, The Phenix City Story, and The Brothers Rico have languished in studio vaults and are not currently available on home video. Luckily, however, Karlson's Kansas City Confidential has been an exception. It has been released on VHS in various editions. And now, thanks to Image Entertainment, Kansas City Confidential (1951) comes to DVD.
