Kent Taylor goes undercover to stop a gold-smuggling ring
13 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Federal Agent at Large" (1950) works well as a short crime noir. Kent Taylor is smooth as the customs agent posing as a gangster. He insinuates himself into a gang that smuggles gold into America that they ship to the Orient and sell at prices twice the fixed $35 an ounce weight set by the U.S. The smuggling is made easy by using a professor (Robert Rockwell) who has fallen for one of the gang, Dorothy Patrick. He can bring objets d'art across the border without inspection and they can conceal gold.

Frank Puglia and Thurston Hall provide notable support. Denver Pyle appears as one of the gang's heavies.

The plot and twists of this story follow an unexpected path. It's a good Republic entry.
