Investment broker Lloyd Rollins, insisting to his wife Linda that they stop at Las Vegas on their trip from Boston, begins to gamble heavily. Linda visits the Last Chance, a casino where she used to sing, and where she meets police lieutenant Dave Andrews, with whom she had a brief affair some years earlier. Insurance investigator Tom Hubler soon arrives to keep an eye on Linda's valuable necklace for his company, unaware that Rollins hocked the necklace with Clayton, owner of the Last Chance. Lt. Andrews, rebuffed by Linda, learns that Clayton has been murdered. He deduces the killer's identity and begins a deadly chase when he learns the killer has taken Linda hostage and fled into the desert. Written by

Surprisingly good for a relatively unheralded work. Russell's dramatic role is also a surprise. Mature is at his best.
Saw this movie om Jane Russell's 85th Birthday (Thanks TCM!) I was impressed by her great performance - I think the first I've seen in a dramatic role. Victor Mature was excellent, too, even if he was playing to type. Hoagy was good, also, but nothing can touch his performance in "Best Days of Our Lives." J.C. Flippen also good in what would become a stereotypical role providing comic relief but not a fop in the style of "Barnie Fife".
Am curious about the scene shot in an abandoned Air Force base. Logic dictates this is Nellis AFB but I doubt it was abandoned in 1952. Does anybody know where this location shoot took place?
