One more little gem

I would not consider this little film as a crime flick. Not really, rather a social drama instead. Produced by Columbia Pictures, this D Ross Lederman film focuses on the problem which tunnel workers have to fight against. Victor Jory plays the foreman. A hard boiled character, as you can guess. I watched a very good copy, great quality indeed. It helped me to appreciate. Scènes in tunnels are quite good made too. Some action and crime elements take also part in this well paced tale, but not enough although to make this movie a crime flick. The copy I saw was not a taping off, but rather a duplicate from a 16mm or 35mm print.

Recommended for gem seekers, as I usually say for this kind of films.
