Adequate and amusing little crime flick.

I am surprised that this little crime film has not been commented yet. Directed by the B film maker Jean Yarbrough, it is not a masterpiece, but remains Worth watching for a feature of this kind. A few accents of comedy, but not at a scale where it affects the whole tale, a gangster film, after all, about racketeers. The topic has already been told above, so I won't repeat it. A rather unusual story, if you compare to another movies from this era. And the running time is not too long, only 62 minutes. The quality is quite good, from a TCM taping off. Thousands others of this kind remain to be seen, maybe lost somewhere. Let's cross our fingers.
