Storyline

Sherry Conley, a street tough and cynical woman with an unhappy family background, is taken from prison to a hotel, where the DA tries to convince her to testify against a mobster. Sherry is reluctant because the last witness was murdered before he made it to the stand, and why should she stick her neck out? At the hotel, several attempts are made on her life, and she falls for Vince, the policemen guarding her. Written by John Oswalt <jao@jao.com>

Quotes

Lloyd Hallett: What possible difference could it make to you whether you move there or to the city jai?
Sherry Conley: Because movin' to the city jail is closer to the witness stand which is exactly the last place in the world I've decided I'm gonna be.
Lloyd Hallett: So that's really it then, isn't it?
Sherry Conley: Yeah.
Lloyd Hallett: Doesn't make any difference about the city jail. You've simply decided that as far as you're concerned everybody else can go hang.
Sherry Conley: You mean I've been keepin' this a secret from ya?

Another "heart of gold" moll
14 October 2004 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Ginger Rogers, who was usually more glamorous in her movie roles, invades territory normally occupied by Claire Trevor or Veda Ann Borg. She's a good time gal who happens to be on a pleasure cruise with mob boss Lorne Greene and Greene has smuggled another gangster into the country. U.S. Attorney Edward G. Robinson is seeking to deport Greene.

Greene's enemies have a habit of ending up dead. And our story begins with conflicted cop Brian Keith assigned to protect Ginger as Robinson tries to convince her to testify.

Rogers's career was on the downside here, but she's still a dynamite presence on the screen. Robinson and Keith are solid here and who would have thunk of Ben Cartright as a mobster.

Nice film, tightly edited, not a wasted frame in it.
