Quotes

Douglas Worthington: You know, most people are deceiving, Grey. One really never knows what a man is, just by looking at him. Now, take you, for instance. I would never really have suspected that you were a prizefighter.
Allen Grey: Well, I guess very few of us run true to type.

Familiar but still quite well done.

Charles Starrett stars in this film as an undercover agent. After a warehouse is robbed and a night watchman killed, there is some evidence that a local businessman MIGHT actually be a mobster who's behind this. Starrett was chosen because he is an excellent boxer—and the man who might be the mobster has a very strong interest in the fight business. When Alan 'Knockout' Gray (Starrett) starts winning fight after fight, he is noticed and soon his contract is bought by the suspected mob boss. But there are some problems—the boss' sister is a pretty lady who Gray is interested in knowing better and soon his cover is blown and Gray has to think fast to get himself out of that mess.

While I found this film a bit predictable and formulaic, I liked it. Starrett, while NOT a famous actor today, was excellent. The only negative were the boxing scenes—where the guys punched each other like rabbits on crack!! No one boxes that intensely in real life—they'd never make it past the first round! Still, the film was exciting and well done—making it a better than average and exciting little B-movie.

UPDATE: Just a week or so after seeing this film, I watched a 1959 film "T-Bird Gang" and was surprised to see that it was a remake of "What Price Crime?"! IMDb doesn't indicate this but the later film clearly is the same story idea with only a few minor changes.
