Effective B Crime Drama.
30 January 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Lloyd Nolan stars as a young lawyer who uses his knowledge of the legal system to aid criminals. The top man receiving Nolan's information is one of the city's underworld kingpin's, played by Barton MacLane. Nolan thinks nothing of using his skills to thwart justice.

It's all a game to him. Lola Lane stars as a young woman who hopes that Nolan will come around and see the error of his ways. Ultimately, Nolan will come face to face with what his work has led to and that will leave a bitter taste in his mouth. A solid Republic crime film that borders on film noir.

The print I saw ran only 52 minutes and is the edited TV print.
