A pretty good cast, or at any rate well known, but the story is strictly by the numbers. Raft is released from prison, has difficulty finding and keeping work because of prejudice against ex-inmates, is drawn back into life of crime, and so on. The gunfighter who's attempt to hang up his guns and retire was an exercise in futility. There are one or two shootouts to enliven the story, but even they seem routine. Maudlin score. Just another Warner's gangster movie with nothing outstanding in the script, performances, or direction.
