Editorial Reviews

Soon after L.A. police detective Mike Carter is bounced from the force, the officer who fired him is found dead. Suspect #1: Mike Carter. While the police dragnet draws tighter, Carter scrambles to clear his name, connecting the dots involving Pasadena bluebloods, the meat-packing industry and cop corruption. As Carter, noir icon Lawrence Tierney (Dillinger, Reservoir Dogs) brings grim toughness to this atmospheric whodunit that marks the genre debut of another film noir notable, director Richard O. Fleischer (Armored Car Robbery, The Narrow Margin). A filmmaking legend of even greater renown was in the wings. Robert Altman of M*A*S*H, Nashville and Gosford Park receives his first credit (as story co-writer Robert B. Altman).

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Hot-headed former detective Lawrence Tierney is framed for the the murder of the police boss who fired him. He manages to stay one step ahead of the police as he races to track down the real killer and clear his name, with the help of his girlfriend Priscilla Lane. This is a well paced and efficient B film with some good one liners from Tierney. Interesting to see Tierney in different role to his usual bad guy characters (Dillinger, Born to Kill, The Devil Thumbs A Ride). The black and white picture and sound are in excellent condition for this 60+ year old movie. No extras, not even a theatrical trailer. Picture quality 9/10, Sound 9/10, Movie 6.5/10

Although somewhat entertaining, some critics felt that 13 minutes were cut from the film which would have patched up some of the leaky holes in a somewhat convoluted plot. Apparently there is a director's cut of the film which runs 75 minutes, but this version I have on DVD runs only 62 minutes.

Anyway, Tierney is always interesting to watch and Priscilla Lane makes the most of a role as his love interest,
