Movie Info

Johnny Allegro offers a big pot of boiling mish-mash stew that is two parts gangster melodrama and one part The Most Dangerous Game. The story centers on cold-blooded George Raft as a reformed mobster who gets hired by the Treasury Department to do investigate a possible conspiracy to overthrow the government launched by a powerful counterfeiter who runs his evil operations from a private Caribbean island. To infiltrate the crook's gang, Raft pretends to be a fleeing fugitive. Macready, the elegant villain, buys the ruse and allows Raft to join the gang and come upon the island as a guest. Unfortunately, he soon learns MacReady's real motives for the invite. It seems he enjoys doing a bit of hunting and Raft is going to be his latest prey.more
