Quotes

Joe Farrow: You been losing a lot lately. Almost broke, ain't ya?
Marc Fury: That's your estimate.
Lloyd Crane: Would 50,000 dollars interest you?
Marc Fury: Maybe.
Lloyd Crane: Well, here's your situation. I suggest you let them put you on trial. We'll plead self-defense and keep you off the stand. It'll appear obvious that Blenheim pulled a gun, shot you and you grabbed it. In the scuffle, Blenheim was killed. Farrow will be a good witness. And I'm positive no one can laugh off that hole in you.
Marc Fury: [turning his head towards Farrow] Have a got your word ...

Horrible Film with Great Actors!
14 January 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are not many pictures which bore me with great former actors like Victor Mature (Marc Fury), Terry Moore,(Lynn Warren), William Bendix(Joe Farrow and Cleo Moore,(Sally). If you love to see these great film stars back in the early 1950's, enjoy the acting and forget about the plot, it lost me from the very beginning!
