Pickup on South Street

Apart from the fact that is black and white and has Thelma Ritter in it, it is not really appealing. Rather soppy actually. And I have no idea why the pickpocket kept kissing the girl and then boxing her, and why on earth would anyone fall in love with that guy too. The film even killed off  Thelma Ritter, that too in an uncharacteristically sentimental manner. Did they think she was Pandari Bai ?
