NEW ORLEANS UNCENSORED - 1955

This film which was made on location in New Orleans is the "true" story of one man's battle with the mob. Arthur Franz plays a just discharged navy man who ends up in New Orleans looking for work. He hits the docks looking for a job as a longshoreman. It does not take long before he becomes involved in the seamy side of dock life.

Kick-backs to the union bosses, stolen cargo, or as they say, "misplaced" cargo, and even murder. When a friend is killed off for rocking the boat, Franz decides to get some pay back. He tells the police he will go undercover and get the goods on the mob boss, Michael Ansara.

Ansara plays the mobster with the unlikely name of Floyd "Zero" Saxon. When Ansara catches wind of the police investigation, he decides to bump off Franz. There is a dockside chase and a blazing gun battle before all is put right and Ansara is disposed of.

There is some great back and forth between Franz and Beverly Garland who plays the mobster's girl. While Garland and Franz are doing a little couch wrestling, she cracks, "Be sure not to skid on the curves!" While the film does slide a bit in the middle, overall it gets the job done.

William Castle handles the direction and gets the most out of the cast and crew despite what must have been a shoestring budget. Though known for a string of horror films in the late 50's and early 60's. Castle pumped out some good b features earlier in his career. These include, THE WHISTLER, THE FAT MAN, SLAVES OF BABYLON, DRUMS OF TAHITI, BATTLE OF ROGUE RIVER, THE AMERICANO, UNDERTOW and the excellent noir, JOHNNY STOOL PIGEON.

Long serving cinematographer, Henry Freulich handles the lensing of the film. Some of his better known films are, IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA, SHADOWED, BOSTON BLACKIE GOES Hollywood, CHINATOWN AT MIDNIGHT, BUNCO SQUAD, UNDER THE GUN, THE CROOKED WEB, Miami STORY and GOOD DAY FOR A HANGING.

Well worth a watch.
