Gripping 'lost' gangster movie.
4 June 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This gripping 'lost' gangster movie (finally being released on DVD, having never been theatrically released in the U.S.) was filmed in Paris by acclaimed noir director Frank Tuttle (THIS GUN FOR HIRE, THE GLASS KEY). It stars Dane Clark as U.S. army deserter-turned-gangster Eddy Roback who is sprung from a police van by his criminal cohorts whilst being transported to the courthouse. Wounded in the gun battle, Eddy looks up former flame Denise Vernon (Simone Signoret), in the hope that she will obtain the necessary cash for a flight across the border. However, with the dogged police and Denise's new beau, a crime reporter named Frank Clinton, on his trail, time is running out for Eddy as he attempts to rely on his former criminal network and moll to secure his passage to freedom. Shot on authentic locations by noted cinematographer Eugen Schufftan (EYES WITHOUT A FACE, THE HUSTLER), this is a gripping man-on-the-run crime movie, and rattles along at a fair clip, aided in no small part by the performances; especially Signoret as the tragic moll and Clark as the pitiless hard-boiled criminal. The Gallic setting lends an effective air of authenticity and doomed romanticism to an oft-told tale, and this previously rarely-seen genre movie is well-worth seeking out.
