A tense, absorbing drama.
Somewhere along about the middle of all these goings-on, an alert and knowing observer may spot some provoking holes.
The earnest plot is nothing to write home about, but the effective use of documentary-style location shooting and deep-focus photography was innovatory for its day.
Teal is frighteningly realistic as the corrupt police chief, and Sutherland is even more terrifying as the crime boss. Dawson is perfect as the gumshoe whose honesty exceeds his greed.
An exposé of organised crime, as seen through the eyes of a small-town newspaper editor, played by John Forsyth.
... a tough yet austere little crime story carved out of a small budget.
Cutting Citizen Kane and The Magnificent Ambersons definitely did Wise a few favors.
The film is one of those works that uneasily links the old B-movie tradition with the message movies that later took over with bigger production values.
One of the first crime films to use the Kefauver crime hearings as part of its expose story.
John Forsythe is an honest, small town newspaper editor who tugs at a tiny thread and unravels an entire crime syndicate. An obscure but worthy little film noir bolstered by the the talented (and somewhat masculine) Miss Joan Camden.
