I am very surprised not to have commented this little crime flick yet. But I am dead sure that I have done it for other Paramount crime programmers from this very era, starring the likes of the early Tony Quinn, Lloyd Nolan, J Caroll Naish, Buster Crabbe. The topic are nearly always the same, I agree, but they are all pretty good time wasters, fast paced in the pure Warner Bros style with Jimmy Cagney or Eddy Robinson. The main directors for those films were mainly Louis King and Bob Florey. No surprise here, folks, just the atmosphere if you like it, not more but that's far enough for me. Just enjoy.
There were others of those little flicks. I am sure they are available some where.
