Movie Info

A corrupt police officer looks to escape justice in this sleuth crime drama directed by Edmond O'Brien and Howard W. Koch. When an officer named Barney (O'Brien) is in desperate need of money, he decides to take that money by lethal force from a bookie, but commits the crime in eyesight of a deaf mute man on the street. Although the cop looks to make his cold-blooded act look like a random crime, his plot quickly begins to unravel. Marla English co-stars as Barney's girlfriend, Patty.
