Kazan shot most of the film on location, using high-contrast cinematography and an extremely mobile camera to create a palpable sense of urgency.

This 1947 film is limited in scope and feeling, but the superficial dramatics work well enough.

Elia Kazan, as an afterthought, comments he wished he played up the corruption part of the story in more detail.
