Although the story is set in a New Mexico border town, it was filmed in northern New Mexico. Early in the movie, Robert Montgomery is standing next to a large wall map in a bus terminal, and it is indeed a map of the Albuquerque and Santa Fe area. See more »

Robert Montgomery directs and stars in this seldom seen piece of Film-Noir. A hard-boiled war vet(Montgomery)arrives in the small town of San Pablo as the community is preparing its annual fiesta. He gets the help of a carousel owner(Thomas Gomez)and an alluring young woman(Wanda Hendrix)to track down a profiteer to blackmail him as revenge for killing his buddy. At times it is hard to tell the good guys from the bad. Well directed and photographed. Hendrix is absolutely beautiful. Also in the cast are: Fred Clark and Art Smith.
