This obviously was a pretty low budget production, but the cast was pretty decent, the basic premise had promise, and something more could have been done with it, but the script wasn't that great- the plot is incoherent and seems almost random at times and the dialog is stilted and terrible.
Basically, a girl's father gets whacked by fellow gangsters, and later she becomes a robber, and wants to avenge his death, and then it goes into a mob protection racket involving corrupt politicians.
Alan Ladd gets top billing but he really plays a very minor role.
I have to say I found it mildly entertaining in its archaic B-grade hokiness but it really is shoddy and pathetic.
