OK routine expose drama

As far as I know, that's the only film noir directed by Frederic De Cordova. He made comedies, westerns and entertaining adventure movies with the gorgeous Yvonne De Carlo. But thrillers, none. So, it's a good surprise for me.

This one is a routine expose about an undercover man - Howard Duff - who is recruited by the police force, federal agents, to spoil a smuggling racket. Not great surprise in this flick. George Brent is the cop in charge of the undercover mission and Paul Stewart one of the the bad guys, the heavy of the film. Let's not forget Marta Toren. She contributes to this story.

In short, a well done movie, unusual for its director. Deserves to be seen.
