Routine little crime flick.

A rare Republic Pictures little gem, directed by a guy who was not a noir specialist. Sidney Salkow mainly worked, in the fifties, on westerns and adventures films. Such as : GOLDEN HAWK, RAIDERS OF THE SEVEN SEAS, GREAT SIOUX MASSACRE, PRINCE OF PIRATES, GUN DUEL IN DURANGO, some crime povides such CHICAGO CONFIDENTIAL and LAS VEGAS SHAKEDOWN. And above all the fist of Richard Matheson's novel adaptation: I AM A LEGEND made for the big screen under the title: LaST MAN ON EARTH, starring Vincent Price, and the best one, besides the two starring Charlton Heston - in 1971 - and Will Smith - in 2007.

Back to this film, it's a very B grade picture, a mix up between authentic noir atmosphere and also a bit of humour in the Charlie Chan mood. Robert Armstrong gives here an interesting performance as a gang leader who tries to save his brother's life, a young man who needs a transplant. Good actionner, fast paced. Efficiently done.

Good B piece of work.
