A man in NYC is murdered and robbed of $300,000 in marked money. A year later some of the bills start showing up in Los Angeles. Detectives Bruner and Farnum are assigned to follow the money trail. It leads to lounge singer Ida Lupino and eventually tension and backstabbing between the two partners.
It might not be action-packed, but I enjoyed it quite a bit. The acting is top-notch. The story is interesting and hard-boiled. The direction by Don Siegel - who'd later go on to direct DIRTY HARRY- is excellent with numerous scenes shot on city streets and the horse track (I loved watching the crowd and seeing the old cars). Any fan of classic film noir and older crime movies should have this in their collection. If it came out on DVD I'd buy it in a second.
