This is one of my favorite films noir, made on the cheap at Eagle-Lion Films.
One of the most nasty-minded, brutal dramas in a genre noted for - practically defined by - its overwhelming nihilism.
A visual high point of film noir.
The credits indicate Alfred L. Werker only, but this thriller is of a piece with the noir circle of T-Men and Raw Deal, courtesy of an uncredited Anthony Mann.
Sort of an interesting story, but the movie feels very average, and the cast has no real stars.
decent documentary style noir with annoying voiceover narration. ends with a cool chase through the sewers of l.a. pre-dragnet jack webb looks goofy.
An early police procedural that was the template for Dragnet. Although this picture is said to be directed by Alfred Werkler it's actually a early directorial project by Anthony Mann.
Worth seeing just for the final chase through the sewers of LA
I saw this a few years ago, but remember not being too impressed. It seemed like a precursor to today's CSI bombardment and even before that, Dragnet. And I'm sure this is no coincidence seeing as how it starred an oddly young Jack Webb. The direction was great, as was the final chase but I don't even need to see it again.
