Relentless postal inspector Al Goddard is set to Gary, Indiana, when another officer is murdered. He must find the nun who witnessed the murder, then infiltrate the gang by convincing them he is a postal inspector gone bad. Written by

I am sick and tired of every kind of crime movie shot in the 30's, 40's, and 50's that is filmed in black and white being labeled a 'film noir'. This Alan Ladd vehicle is a typical example, one scene shot in a dark alley in the rain and it's a film noir. I don't think so.
It is, in fact a run of the mill heist movie with nothing to recommend it other than watching Alan Ladd (if you are a fan).
The plot is straight forward with no particular twists or turns to create any interest for the viewer.
The fact that it involves postal inspectors instead of one of the usual law enforcement agencies adds no interest, in fact it comes across as an advertisement for the US Postal Service
Jack Webb's performance was the only thing of any value in the movie.
