Tightly paced social problem programmer is well directed by Losey. Carey was never the strongest of leading men and perhaps the film would have been better served by an actor with more gravitas in the lead but he turns in an acceptable performance. Gail Russell is fine in the limited screen time she has but her role isn't really noteworthy. The person who is underutilized is Lee Patrick as an out of town reporter, whenever she's on screen the other actors recede into the background so sharp is her presence, the mark of a truly outstanding supporting performer. The story is sadly relevant however even today, how people can be swayed by mob rule and unreasoning prejudice.

OK... Phillip Guzman directed a movie called The Lawless which was released in 2007 and starred David Frost, Denton Blane Everett, Eryn Brooke and Jason Riley Hoss.

The Lawless that I'm looking for, though, is a movie directed by Joseph Losey which was released in 1950 and starred Gail Russell, John Hoyt and Johnny Sands.

Is it possible to correct those mistakes???
