An ex-employee of the mob is forced to return to his old stomping grounds after his brothers get in trouble with the mob. This is an absorbing drama that takes a bleak, realistic look at mob life. Conte and Foster are fabulous as a married couple trying to distance themselves from his past as an accountant for the syndicate. They are especially good in their natural depiction of married life as they go about their morning routine. Also impressive is Gates as a mob boss. Conte appeared in a number of mob films, including "The Godfather." Curiously, Grant (who married Bing Crosby following this film) has a small role but is given equal billing with Conte and Foster.
