Part heist movie, part whodunnit, sometimes funny, sometimes chilling, movies featuring the AllMovie theme Hide the Dead Body are usually tense and always fun.
Check out thrillers like Shallow Grave and Rope, or comedies like Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead and Clue (pictured).
Directed by Milos Forman
Author E. L. Doctorow had several of his novels turned into films, including "Welcome to Hard Times," "The Book of Daniel" and "Billy Bathgate." But "Ragtime," the book that solidified Doctorow's reputation, is arguably the best adaptation. Directed by Milos Foreman, with a superb score by Randy Newman, it saw the return of James Cagney to the big screen in what would be his final appearance.
