Why not?

I usually Watch this kind of movies. Rare and B films found thanks of TCM or from bootlegged stuff, transfered from 16mm prints. Joe May is a director whose I don't really know the work, except maybe some of his latest features. He was a film maker who ran away from Nazi Germany, that's all I know from him.

It is more a comedy and drama rather of a crime flick. Some fists and gunfights scenes, especially at the end, so suddenly that it almost woke me up, in the pure Tarantino style, at the moment you don't expect at all. But it's not BEAST OF THE CITY either, nor LAW AND ORDER (Eddy Cahn's film, of course, not the Nathan Juran's one.)

Preston Foster is not here as terrific as he was in KANSAS CITY CONFIDENTIAL. The usual grade B picture from Universal Studios.
