A counterfeit ring has done an outstanding job of keeping their printing presses with fresh equipment to thwart the FBI. The FBI hires two agents to work undercover, hopefully infiltrate the ring, and bring down the men responsible.

Anthony Mann, director of El Cid, Winchester '73, The Glenn Miller Story, The Fall of the Roman Empire, Cimarron, The Far Country, Serenade, and Thunder Bay, delivers T-Men. The storyline for this picture is fairly straightforward with interesting characters and circumstances. The acting is solid and the characters are portrayed well. The cast includes Dennis O'Keefe, Mary Meade, Alfred Ryder, June Lockhart, Charles McGraw, and Wallace Ford.
