A greedy woman turns in her husband, a jewel thief, for the reward. Her husband's friend, a detective, adopts the couple's child and raises her as his own. Eighteen years later the husband, still in prison, finds out that his ex-wife is now attempting to blackmail their daughter. He vows to break out and put a stop to her once and for all. Written by
This classic film noir crime drama is a remake of 1936's Forgotten Faces. Harry's daughter has been raised by the Judge who put him behind bars.When his estranged wife threatens him with blackmail, Harry escapes prison to keep her quiet, permanently. Brian Donlevy stars as the convict willing to sacrifice everything for his daughter, a girl who may never know her real father. A stylish thriller, that although slightly dated, is still a treat to watch if you appreciate the classics.
