An efficient Robert Florey gem

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I am surprised that no one has commented it yet. After all, it's a Robert Florey's film, the guy who gave us already some B movies from Paramount Studios, the famous ones I talk sometimes about, starring J Caroll Naish, Loyd Nolan, Anthony Quinn. Very quick and fast paced crime flicks, as Warner ones were.

The story was written by J Edgard Hoover, the famous FBI director for fifty years, and also by Horace MacCoy. It could have been a sort of expose, especially when we watch the beginning of this feature, but there is no off voice, as we could expect. Anthony Quinn plays here a ruthless gangster on parole who kills a cop and participates at a kidnapping. This film also speaks about the problem of hard boiled criminals to whom the justice gives a chance of redemption.

I guess that was the message of this film.
