Ernie Driscoll (John Payne) is an ex-fighter who came within seconds of winning the world championship. He's now forced to eke out a living driving a cab. A basically decent guy, he has lots of people who care about him, including Linda James (Evelyn Keyes), a slightly ditsy actress friend -- but Ernie also has a short fuse, especially where his wife Pauline (Peggie Castle) is concerned. His rage boils over when he spots her kissing another man, but her unfaithfulness turns out to be the least

... arguably Karlson's greatest film and certainly his most beautifully brutal... a film driven by the fury of a man who is tired of being life's punching bag.
Phil Karlson directed series of very tough, violent film noirs, but few of them are as tough and violent as the superb 99 River Street.
