Movie Info

In this topical film noir, a gang smuggles illegal Mexican farmworkers across the California border and kills the immigrants before they can return home. When federal agents Pablo Rodriguez (Ricardo Montalban) and Jack Bearnes (George Murphy) go undercover to overturn the organization, they find themselves face-to-face with its leader, Owen Parkson (Howard da Silva). The agents quickly realize that what began as a routine murder case has become a struggle for survival.

    From a story standpoint this is not noir, but it sure as hell looks like it. Ricardo Montalban and George Murphy go undercover to stop an illegal alien ring. Mann's direction is fantastic and is the perfect setup to the westerns he'd later make. Border Incident is pretty violent (the tractor scene alone was pretty frightening--and I've seen The Terminal!!) by even today's standards. My only concern is with the film's social and political relevance that a remake can't be too far behind.
