Violent and viscerally sexual, Anthony Mann's muscular low-budget noir tells the tale of a framed gangster's quest for vengeance after he busts out of prison. Once freed, gangster Joe Sullivan Dennis O'Keefe) and his girl friend Pat (Claier Trevor) set off to find the mobster who set him up. The kidnapping of Ann Martin (Marsha Hunt), the social worker who wrote to Joe in prison, leads the fugitive into a romantic triangle of death, passion and tragedy. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

The next time someone asks me to define "film noir," I'm going to say Raw Deal.
Top notch noir flick directed by Anthony Mann with Dennis O'Keefe starring.
The apex of noir style, offering up electric visions of sin, salvation, and sexual mania.
